The sessions will take place on Tuesdays at 1:00 pm at the Walzer Family Jewish Community Campus, 444 Main Street North, Southbury.

On April 17, Denise Julian and Kathleen Pye will kick off the series, as they share over 70 years’ combined experience working with elders and their families. Their topic will include: valuable insights on medical, psychological and social issues,  tips on how to best support the aging adult in your life, navigating and using your physician network as a resource and successful supportive interventions via a multidisciplinary approach. This session is in collaboration with the Watermark at East Hill.

All of these sessions will provide valuable information for caregivers who are responsible for the care of others, as well as tips for staying healthy themselves. Attendees are not required to attend all of the sessions.
