AARP AARP States Caregiving

Calling All Caregivers

AARP GA is collaborating with the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving to provide the Prepare to Care:  “Caring for You, Caring for Me” workshops at the Buck Melton Center, 150 Sessions Drive, Macon Ga 31201.

This 10-hour program, conducted in five two-hour modules, addresses the needs of family and professional caregivers by bringing them together in a relaxed setting to discuss common issues, share ideas, and gain a better understanding of each other’s perspective on what it means to be a caregiver. The program will allow caregivers to:

Gain information on various topics related to caregiving:

Learn ways of coping with the stresses and strains of being a caregiver

Learn what resources are available locally, regionally and nationally

Discover ways of working together to reduce frustrations and barriers in the caregiving

Share common concerns and issues.

 

AARP’s Prepare to Care booklet will also be used in the workshops, and attendees will receive several handouts during each of the five sessions. Other details are as follow:
