Caring for CareGiver

April 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Heart of Hanna & Tier1Recovery are responding to the Crisis amongst our Paterson community caregivers. Many of us ‘suffer in silos’ bearing the brunt of our needs and the needs of those we care for and serve. The need for self-care is of paramount importance. It’s ok not to be ok. But it’s not ok to suffer in isolation and not reach out for help. In recent weeks we have witnessed intense turmoil with the shooting of Najee Seabrooks. Questions arose as to why he wasn’t able to get help for his crisis? Why didn’t anyone notice the signs and symptoms? This happens all the time because the community wants caregivers to be SUPER HEROES and we buy into that myth.

This symposium is for caregivers, faith-based leaders, community leaders and parents. Professionals from St Joseph’s Healthcare will be on hand as well as para professionals from a variety of healthcare providers.
