These forums are a place for caregivers with a loved one at home to connect and gather. Our goal is to provide you with a virtual place to meet, share stories, gain new perspectives, and share coping strategies with others going through a similar experience. These forums are facilitated by PMC social worker Leah Fein.
PMC is offering three classes for caregivers this fall. We have a pre-recorded class that can be taken at one’s own pace. We also have live, virtual classes for adult children caregivers and spousal caregivers.
Information about the fall schedule for our Mindfulness and Meditation class and Creative Expressions Through Music program will be available soon.
