According to the Pew Research Center, nearly half of all Americans between the ages of 40 to 59 find themselves caring for two generations—their children and their parents. This role can bring with it financial, emotional, and physical challenges. Many members at Pilgrimage UCC find themselves “sandwiched” between two generations. Looking for support, they started the “Sandwich Club,” a support group that meets monthly. As part of Pilgrimage’s community outreach program, the “Sandwich Club” is hosting the caregiver workshop for the surrounding community.
Pilgrimage has partnered with Robin Washington, director of Paisley Bridges, to offer a workshop focused on self help and coping skills for anyone who is in the role of caregiver.
The event, “Who Cares for the Caregiver?” will be held on Saturday, March 23 from 3 pm to 4 pm at Pilgrimage.
For the past 12 years, Paisley Bridges has helped families and seniors navigate through the many dynamics of aging. As the Founder of Paisley Bridges, LLC, Life Coach Robin Washington empowers Senior Adults with opportunities to live their most fulfilling lives, whether they remain in their own homes, live with a family member, or relocate to an independent or assisted living facility. She has built her career upon her commitment to provide wellness, enrichment, and fulfillment to Seniors through workshops, consultations with individuals and their families, and education that enables them to make the best choices for their current and future health and lifestyles.
While there is no fee for the event, workshop planners ask that you complete the registration form which is available at www.pilgrimageucc.org/
