Dr Ann Hiatt and Mary Adler share more about the support group ‘Caregivers Wellbeing’ and their individual journeys as caregivers with Verne (WBFJ).
Our message for ‘caregivers’: “You don’t have to go through your ‘journey’ alone”. ‘We hear you. We are here for you’
Dr Ann Hiatt, PhD is the facilitator of a local support group called ‘Caregivers Wellbeing’. Dr Hiatt’s caregiving journey with her mom is detailed in her book, ‘Detour Down Desperation Road’
“Caregivers Wellbeing literally saved my life during my caregiving days…” Mary Adler (from being a caregiver, to giving support to other caregivers)
November is National Family Caregivers month
Every 4 seconds someone is diagnosed with dementia. Even more shocking: 40% of caregivers will ‘pass’ before the person they are caring for. Biggest reason…stress.
