THA Group’s Island Hospice Offers Free Educational Seminars on Independent Living at Home

THA Group’s Island Hospice began its new Tools for the Journey year-long series of seminars, starting in October. These free seminars provide families with tips on aging at home and living independently as long as possible.

The next seminar, Caring for the Caregiver: Understanding the Stress of Caregiving, will be held on December 3, 2014 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. at Grace Coastal Church, 15 Williams Drive, Okatie, SC 29909, and December 9, 2014, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Beaufort Medical Plaza’s third floor classroom at 989 Ribaut Road, Beaufort, SC 29902. Topics will include the caregiver’s role; identifying signs of stress, compassion fatigue and burnout; and resources to help cope with the caregiver role. The schedule for the remaining seminars is included on page two.
