Depression in the Caregiver
Events, Families, People

Caring for a loved one is a rewarding, experience, yet it can lead to stress and depression.  Pine Tree Hospice’s “Caring for the Caregiver” series is hosting a ‘Depression in the Caregiver’ workshop which will explore the signs and risks of caretaking as well as where to turn to for help.  Valerie Sauda, who is an ANCC certified gerontological nurse, will start the morning by discussing the clinical signs and prevalence of depression, highlighting caregiver risks, red flags to watch for, as well as suggestions for keeping the caregiver healthy.  After a healthy lunch provided by Pine Tree Hospice, Josephine Cirrinone, LSW, CCP, and Theresa Boettner, a Family Caregiver Specialist through Eastern Area Agency on Aging, will discuss caregiver resources within the community and throughout the surrounding areas.  Please join us April 2, 2014, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Mayo Regional Hospital’s Resource Center in the Sebec/Borestone rooms for this free workshop.  Pre-registration is recommended.  Please call 564-4346 or email for more information or to register.
