Free workshop/lunch for family caregivers set Nov. 20

The annual Family Caregivers Workshop, a free event and light lunch for family caregivers, will be provided 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20 in the auditorium of Leesburg Regional Center’s North Campus, 301 W. Oak St., Leesburg.

Janice Boleyn, Wellness Program Assistant for Central Florida Health, says November is National Family Caregivers awareness month, and the workshop is a special way for caregivers to enjoy fellowship with one another, to learn from each other and from professionals dedicated to serving their needs.

The program will focus on resources, where people can go to find the right information at the right time; proactive planning; when is a good time to ask for help; and caregiver fatigue, recognizing what it is, how to know if it’s happening to you, and how to deal with it.

Vistas Healthcare is sponsoring the event. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 352-446-5749.
