FBWEV Support for Caregivers
On Wednesday, July 9th, FBWE Villagers tackled a most difficult subject in the fourth Health & Wellness series — Elements of Caregiving. No matter how healthy we and our loved ones are, some form of caregiving is in our future.
Phyllis Kramer, a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist for the past 35 years, specializing in the dynamics of caregiving, discussed how to successfully navigate this often difficult and very personal endeavor. Phyllis spoke of how over time, caregivers experience both physical and psychological stress and outlined for the group how to not neglect their own health while caring for loved ones.
