Caregivers: Attend our Wellness Retreat for Free

Posted on 03/19/21

The job of family caregiver is rewarding, but it is also one of the most challenging jobs you will ever have. Family caregivers can be any age.


Whether it’s your first time being a caregiver or you have experience caring for a loved one, there is help to keep you emotionally and physically healthy.

In an effort to help care for caregivers, we have enlisted the help of Melissa Smith-Wilkinson. She is the founder and executive director of Caregiver Wellness Retreat. It is a nonprofit is dedicated to the well-being of caregivers of Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

We have added the sessions for you below so that you can take advantage of them at your own time and pace. We will continue to update the page after every session.

Here too is a link to free resources AARP has prepared to help you on your caregiving journey.
