"It's All About You" Caring for Caregiver Event

 “It’s All About You!” will be held on February 21, 2015 from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M.  at the Charlotte White Center at 572 Bangor Road, Dover-Foxcroft,  “It’s All About You!” is a free event open to all personal and professional caregivers, past and present.   Attendees will have the opportunity to have a massage or manicure; and to try reiki, guided meditation, B.E.S.T., acupuncture, cranio-sacral therapy and essential oil therapy.  A delicious lunch will also be served. 


More than 20% of Maine households are impacted by caregiving responsibilities.  This translates to one in five Maine families coping with care  for a disabled or chronically ill family member or friend.   In the United States 90% of long-term care is provided by unpaid caregivers.  Many caregivers report having difficulty finding  time for one’s self, managing stress, and balancing work and family responsibilities.


Pine Tree Hospice’s Caring for the Caregiver programs focus on addressing the needs of caregivers in our community.  So often, these individuals devote their time and energy to caring selflessly for another, often sacrificing their own well-being.  Caring for Caregivers events offer support and a little pampering for these individuals.

 So, caregivers, treat yourself to a little care.  You deserve it!


Please pre-register for this event by calling 564-4346 or emailing wecare@pinetreehospice.org.
