"The 5 week workshop was fantastic, it was so informative and gave me so many new tips on being a full time caregiver for my 97yr old Dad. The best thing I took away is the friendships I made with all the participants in the group. We have kept in touch on a biweekly basis and it is so refreshing to touch base and be able to talk with someone who completely understands your situation and what you are going through as they are going through the same thing.."
