A Labor of Love: Facing the Challenges of Caregiving for a Spouse or Intimate Partner
A Labor of Love: Facing the Challenges of Caregiving for a Spouse or Intimate Partner.
Presented by Nancie Potter, JD, LMFT
It’s one thing to promise faithfulness in sickness and in health, but the reality of caring for a spouse with chronic or terminal illness can feel like too much to bear. It’s not just that the physical demands take such a toll. Fear, anxiety, confusion, disappointment, uncertainty, sadness, and anger can sap emotional strength and undermine spiritual foundations. Layer in grief, guilt, shame, underlying relational issues, or outside stressors, and even the most committed caregiver can be overwhelmed. This workshop offers hope and help. Presenter Nancie Potter will address these issues, your questions, and more with warmth, expertise, and understanding. Bring your questions!
WHEN: Saturday, November 3, 2018; 10am-Noon
