Throughout the journey of caregiving, well- defined and well-managed personal boundaries are a blessing to caregivers and care receivers. Boundaries are necessary behavioral constructs if we are to have healthy relationships with other people. We need to be aware of where we end and the other person begins.

Please join us to learn how to establish, to manage, and to maintain mutually beneficial boundaries within your family and with clients or service providers. Please register online.
