Cedar Sinai Park, in collaboration with Jewish Family & Child Service and Sinai Family Home Services, is launching “It Takes a Village: Supporting Families Caring for Elders” in November.
Caring for a family member – whether in your home, their home or in another care setting – can be very stressful. Even if you do not provide hands-on care, you may struggle with a lack of privacy, sleep deprivation, feelings of anger, guilt or depression, or an overwhelming sense of responsibility for the wellbeing of your loved one.
“It Takes a Village” will meet at 7:00pm on the second Monday of each month at Rose Schnitzer Manor. The group will be facilitated by David Molko, Senior Outreach Clinician for Jewish Family & Child Service and Sarah Wheeler, Social Services Director at Robison Jewish Health Center. Participants will have the opportunity to share their concerns, explore solutions to problems, and suggest topics for future meetings.
The first meeting will be held on Monday, November 11, at 7:00 p.m. in the May Living Room at Rose Schnitzer Manor, 6140 SW Boundary Street, Portland.
