Our Guest Speaker will be Charlaine Robinson, a Clinical Counsellor — re PTSD.
Charlaine will speak to us about care giving and PTSD. Research has shown that caregivers can suffer from flashbacks, feelings of numbness, anxiety, guilt, dread, depression and irritability which are all signs of PTSD.
Note: This will be our last meeting, as we take a break for the summer. We will begin again in September, 2018, and we will keep you posted about dates and speakers, etc.
We have changed the venue for our Sessions….The ANAVET’s Hall at Mt. Lehman, 30346 McNeil Avenue, Abbotsford, B.C. (5900 block on Mt. Lehman Road, west of railway intersection.)
Our SIDE BY SIDE project features support sessions on the last Saturday morning of the Month, where interactive presentations on identified health issues are shared by health professionals and fellow caregivers. Each session is facilitated by our Community Support Coordinator, a professional experienced in caregiving and support. Topics may include:
Nutrition & Obesity
Come and meet others dealing with the similar issues, and where ongoing support groups and resources of respite care may develop.
Coffee and/or muffin and lunch are included at the sessions for participants. We realize the importance of a safe space and healthy nourishment for caregivers and any who need an extra “break time”!
