Caregivers Education and Support Group


Contributed by Deborah Merriman

The informal education and support group for employees with aging family members established by the Gerontology Institute together with the Office of Human Resources continues to meet monthly.

The balancing act of holding a job while trying to care for an aging family member can be a challenge. This group provides an environment of support and information for employees dealing with this issue.

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 1, at noon in the room 413 of the Center for Health Sciences (Gerontology Resource Room). The agenda for this meeting will be to address individual questions and concerns from attendees and will be facilitated by Pamela Mayberry of the Gerontology Institute.

The August 5 session will be facilitated by David Stoyell from the Tompkins County Office for the Aging. He will present information on the Caregiver Resource Center.

Please feel to bring your lunch. Beverages and cookies will be provided.
