Caring For The Care-Givers
If you have ever felt squeezed between your own life and the responsibilities of caring for a family member, the United Protestant Church in Grayslake can help. They are hosting a special workshop on Oct. 29 to care for those who care for others.
People who are taking care of a loved one, whether it is a sick child or an elderly parent, know how difficult and isolating the experience can become.
- Ever found it difficult to find time for your own life while caring for another?
- Have you had feelings of guilt about how you are caring for someone?
- Do you feel squeezed between the demands of your own life and the responsibility of caring for someone?
If so, you are invited to a special workshop called Caring for the Care-Givers at the United Protestant Church, 54 S. Whitney Street, Grayslake.
The workshop will be held from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29 at the UPC. The session will be facilitated by Rev. David Russell.
He said the worskhop is designed to support people who care for someone such as a parent, a child, someone disabled or someone ill. The care-givers often find themselves burning out in spite of their most loving intentions to care for their loved one. This workshop will address the feelings of frustration, loss and resentment that can accompany a desire to give care to someone.
