Area Agency on Aging plans Caregiver Wellness Retreat


TROY — Caregiving for a loved one can sometimes overload one’s personal resources of patience and fortitude. November is designated National Family Caregivers Month to help recognize the importance of caregivers themselves and for them to take time out to care for themselves when possible.

The Area Agency on Aging will host a free Caregiver Wellness Retreat at Brukner Nature Center from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 18.

The Good Stuff Foundation of Greenville will conduct sessions for relaxation and stress-reduction techniques involving deep breathing, self-massage, and the power of sound. Additional activities may include a craft and nature walk. This Caregiver Wellness Retreat is a free event focused on stress-release and wellness for family caregivers of older adults. Lunch is sponsored by Oak Street Health.

Advance registration is required by November 10 to ensure seating and food. Register to Mary Hairston at 937-341-6944 or [email protected].

We are an independent, private, nonprofit corporation that plans and funds services for older persons in Champaign, Clark, Darke, Greene, Logan, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, and Shelby counties.
