Fernandina Beach, FL – Taking care of a loved one is not easy. All too often the caregiver pays a high price and this can lead to all sorts of emotional and sometimes even physical problems. According to Aging Facilitator Barbara Bruce, caring for a loved one can be both a blessing and a burden, because we act out of love and often give 100 percent to our loved one and 0 percent for ourselves.
Bruce will be leading a Strategies for Caring for the Caregiver presentation at Nassau County Council on Aging (NCCOA) on March 19th from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Fernandina Beach Senior Center.
She invites the public to come experience tried and tested ways to care for themselves as the caregiver. These strategies take little time and provide great benefit to ourselves and the people we love and care for.
The public is invited to register for this free event by calling NCCOA at (904) 261-0701. The Senior Center is located at 1367 South 18th St across from Baptist Medical Center.
