Council on Aging Adds Evening Caregiver Support Group
Fernandina Beach, FL – Nassau County Council on Aging is pleased to announce a monthly evening support group for caregivers. The first meeting of the evening group will be held Tuesday, March 3rd from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Fernandina Beach Senior Center located at 1367 South 18th St, across from Baptist Medical Center.
Subsequent meetings of the evening group will be held the first Tuesday of each month beginning at 6 p.m. The evening meetings are open to anyone who is a caregiver for someone who is sick, elderly or disabled.
The evening group is in addition to the regular monthly daytime caregiver group that meets every third Thursday of the month from 2:30-4:30 p.m. at the Fernandina Beach Senior Center.
As our population ages, more and more people are taking on the role as caregiver. This can lead to increased stress, frustration, anxiety and depression. The key to being an effective caregiver is remembering to take of yourself before taking care of others.
Meetings for both caregiver groups are free of charge.
For more information, call (904) 261-0701. You may also email Dawna Cornelissen at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sue Keith at Skeith@nassaucountycoa.org.
