You are not alone. In the U.S. today, one in four people provide care and support for another adult (spouse, adult child, relative, friend) who is frail, chronically ill, or has a disability.
“The meetings helped as far the steps to take,” said a caregiver who came to Fairhill Partners looking for support in caring for her mother with Alzheimer’s disease. “There are different steps to take, and you need coping skills to take care of them at all. It’s difficult to go through the stage that they go through, and talking to other people in the same situation makes it easier on you.”
Preparing to give care to a parent, spouse, relative or friend? Come to weekly Meet the Professionals workshops – join other caregivers and professionals for timely, relevant, practical information on successful aging.
Already a caregiver – but overwhelmed and unprepared? Talk to others in similar situations at weekly My Time support groups, facilitated by a social worker.
Connect today to a social worker or other caregivers for questions and ongoing support. Review the Monthly Activity Calendar for classes, support groups, demonstrations and counseling options available at Fairhill Partners.
To register for workshops and programs, call (216) 421-1350.
