Do you have responsibility for caring for a loved one? Do you sometimes feel as if you are at the end of your rope? Are you caring for an older parent who lives with you, or even out-of-state? Then, you need to attend “I’m Toast! Survival Tips for the Burnt-out Caregiver” presented by the Barrington Area Council on Aging.

The program is coming up from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. on November 12th at the Performing Arts Center, 1000 Garlands Lane in Barrington.

Denise M Brown - CaregivingDenise M. Brown, Founder of Caregiving.com, will present a practical workshop about how it feels to be burned-out: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Family caregivers may reach their limits, and still be a in a position of providing care. She will lead a discussion of the realistic, proactive steps a family caregiver can take now to help battle those inevitable days of caregiver burnout.

This educational program is free of charge, because of generous donors to the Council on Aging.

However, reservations are requested early, because seating is limited. To register or get more information, call the Council on Aging at 847-381-5030. The evening will also include a light supper so that as a caregiver you will actually get a real break.
