Dynamics Of Care Giving
& Annual CCCA Election

            Join us on Tuesday, May 15, at 7:30 pm, at the Chevy Chase Community Center, 5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW. Our featured program The Dynamics Of Caregiving: Providing Care and Getting Support, co-sponsored with Northwest Neighbors Village (NNV), was originally scheduled for our March meeting that was postponed due to inclement weather. Prior to the program, we will elect association officers for 2018-19, as well as briefly conduct any other association business. All are welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served.

            With an estimated 44 million unpaid caregivers in the United States, many Americans find themselves caring for adult family members, friends and neighbors at some point in time. These caregivers live nearby or help from a distance and many are supporting more than one person at a time. While the responsibilities are significant, many caregivers find themselves ill prepared to fulfill their roles.  

            The featured program will address the challenges faced while juggling caregiving and managing life's demands and supply information on local resources that can support you and those you care about. Three experienced panelists will provide insights for facing these challenges: Christine Bitzer, LICSW, Assistant Director at Seabury Resources for Aging; Deb Rubenstein, Director of Consultation, Care Management, and Counseling at Iona Senior Services; and Stephanie Chong, LICSW, NNV’s Executive Director.

           This program is ideal for adults of all ages. Seniors and adult children may especially benefit from attending together. Come learn how to better manage the challenges of caregiving.
        NNV is a volunteer-based, community-first, non-profit that provides a community network of support with neighbors giving neighbors the confidence and practical help to thrive as they age while staying healthy, engaged and connected to the community.
