Friday, February 19th is National Caregivers Day and we are honoring the hard work caregivers do for their loved ones every day. The responsibilities and support needed by care recipients have increased dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic. For your continuous dedication and tender loving care, we salute and thank you!
Remember: A vital part of being a caregiver is taking care of yourself.
AFC and Caregiver Resource Center of Orange County are pleased to announce a new support group for family caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. There is no charge to attend, and you can join the group from the comfort and privacy of your home.
The support group meets online every Tuesday from 4 to 5 pm via Zoom videoconferencing. All you need is a computer, tablet or cell phone and an internet connection to join the group.
Our support group is a safe place where you can talk openly and:
- Share caregiving challenges and concerns with others going through a similar experience
- Brainstorm and get tips to resolve day-to-day issues
- Learn about community resources
- Connect with people who truly understand what it’s like to care for someone with memory loss
This group is facilitated by Reverend Judy Osuna, former family caregiver and AFC’s Community Outreach & Education Manager.
Please RSVP to Judy Osuna at JOsuna@afscenter.org to receive the Zoom link.
