MONDAY 
MEDITATION

CARING FOR OLDER ADULTS

Many people are juggling jobs, families and their parents’ or other
family members’ increasing medical needs, frequent emergencies
and ongoing need for care.  How do we cope with the needs of our
loved ones and find some balance in our own lives?  What do we
need to learn as we take on this task?  How do we find information
and community?  If you find yourself in this positions, you are
welcome at this group for discussion and support.  This is a
drop-in group so please attend when it is convenient for you.
