Dynamics Of Care Giving       

            With an estimated 44 million unpaid caregivers in the United States, many Americans find themselves caring for family members, friends and neighbors at some point. 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. 

         Join us on Tuesday, March 20, at 7:30 pm, at the Chevy Chase Community Center, 5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW, for a panel discussion, co-sponsored with Northwest Neighbors Village (NNV): The Dynamics Of Caregiving: Providing Care and Getting Support. NNV is a volunteer-based, community-first, non-profit that provides a 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. All are welcome to attend. Light refreshments will be served.

         The program will address the challenges faced while juggling caregiving and managing life’s demands, and will supply information on local resources that can support you and those you care about. Three experienced panelists will provide insights on 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.
