Cornerstone VNA, a local nonprofit home health provider, is pleased to announce the 7th annual Caregivers Connect, a special event that focuses on providing support to local family caregivers. This free in-person event will take place at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Dover on Thursday, May 18, from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm, and is generously underwritten by First Seacoast Bank.
Attendees will hear from Vicki Kirby, APRN, of Victoria Kirby Wellness, who will speak on “Creating Calm & Fostering Resilience.” An integrative Nurse Practitioner from Bedford, NH, Vicki will help caregivers rethink and reinforce self-care in a way that is attainable and meaningful and most of all simple. The first fifty registrants will receive a complimentary journal after their attendance is confirmed on the day of the event. Respite for loved ones is available upon request.
Julie Reynolds, RN, MS, President/CEO of Cornerstone VNA shares, “We are incredibly happy to be back to an in-person gathering for our annual Caregivers Connect event. Our theme this year will most surely resonate with our family caregivers in the community.” Janice Howard, Life Care – Private Duty Director at Cornerstone VNA adds, “In addition to the supportive discussion, this event will enable our caregivers to experience a sense of camaraderie. It can be very comforting to know you are not alone in your journey as the caregiver of a loved one.”
