2013 Caregiver Retreat

Following that, attorneys Michelle Koufman and Abbey Flaum led an informative session on advanced directives for health care and living wills and our resident caregiver support group leaders Debbi Dooley and Jen Sarafin led an informal support group and an interactive dialogue on the importance of self-care. The afternoon concluded with gentle chair yoga led by Susan Mittleman and 7 minute chair massages by Mobile Massage Pros. Caregivers also were given the opportunity to get Flu Shots from CVS Pharmacist, Jeffrey Levine.

Each caregiver went home with a bag of Thanksgiving themed food staples and a grocery store gift card along with donated bakery goods from the Kroger in Dunwoody. Special thanks to the Bagel Palace for providing breakfast and the Toco Hills Kroger for donating lunch for everyone. November is National Family Caregiver Month. Learn more about how JF&CS supports caregivers.
