AARP Eye Center
AARP Delaware volunteer Eunice LaFate offers free art classes to help ease the stress of family caregivers. The classes will be held in downtown Wilmington on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the month of October, 2023. Sessions are limited to 10 people; registration is required.
Delaware is home to 124,000 family caregivers who tend to aging and ailing loved ones.
LaFate, who found that painting helped her deal with grief when her husband was dying of cancer, encourages her students to work out their feelings and find respite through art.
About 36 percent of caregivers find their situation “highly stressful,” according to a 2020 report by AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving. Nearly 1 in 4 say it’s difficult to take care of their own health.
Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout October, 2023.
You must register for each class separately. Classes are free and include all materials. Find your class here:
