Coping as caregiving topic of Lifetree Café

Coping as caregiving topic of Lifetree Café

Coping with the demands of caregiving will be shared at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.

The program, "Care for Caregivers: Meeting the Unique Needs of Those Who Sacrifice for Others," features a screening of the short film "Life in Reverse." The film chronicles the experiences of Florence Feldman who, for 10 years, served as a caregiver as her mother slowly sank into dementia.

"Being a caregiver can be both rewarding and exhausting," Feldman said. "It's easy to feel isolated and burdened. Getting the help and support needed to stay sane and healthy, let alone to thrive, is a challenge caregivers face."

The Lifetree program offers an hour of support and understanding, as well as Feldman's insights about meeting caregivers' needs.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
