Caregiving focus of workshop

The North Okanagan Hospice Society will host a workshop about planning for caregiving at home.

It will be held in Lumby Sept 5 from 10 a.m. to noon, Sept. 5 in Vernon from 2 to 4 p.m. and Sept. 6 in Armstrong from 10 a.m. until noon.

“Dr. Carole Robinson, professor in the school of nursing at UBC Okanagan, will lead the conversation about caregiving in the home,” sad Lorrianne Topf, learning and effectiveness leader with Hospice House.

“Family caregivers and their seriously ill family member are invited to learn how to plan for caregiving early in the illness journey using a family caregiving decision-making guide. This is an opportunity to gather information and network with other caregivers.”

Discussion includes what to expect, where to turn, who to contact when things change and caregiving becomes more challenging.

Space is limited for these free workshops. Registration is required by Aug. 23. To register, call 250-503-1800 Ext. 101 or e-mail
