On April 9th from 6:00- 8:00 P.M. at the Charlotte White Center, Pine Tree Hospice will present a Caring for the Caregiver event, “Prepare to Care: 5 Steps to a Caregiving Plan for Your Family”. Josephine Cirrinone, Family Caregiver Specialist from the Eastern Area Agency on Aging will present information to assist and educate individuals and families who may be involved in caregiving either now or in the future.
Most people understand that it’s helpful to plan for the future. But when it comes to caring for an aging relative, many families don’t have a plan until there is a problem. Lack of planning doesn’t mean a lack of commitment. Families often avoid discussions about the future because they don’t want to think about changes in the lives of the people they love most.
