Thank you Regina Taggart of Cancer Linc and Freda Wilkins, MSW, M. DIV, of Massey Cancer Center, VCU for your
very informative presentation and support to the community. Regina offered helpful information from Cancer Linc
and the services they offer in the community to help link cancer patients and their families to legal and financial
resources, for more information please contact them at 804-272-5462. Freda Wilkins offered us the wonderful gift of
Caring for the Caregiver, she showed us how important it is for caregivers to take care of themselves and offered us
some valuable self care and relaxation techniques that were beneficial to all of those who were present.
For more information or additional caregiver resources feel free to contact Patti Cox at 804-840-6454 or
Thank you, Bill Humphreys for your wonderful presentation and for leading our October Coffee Chat discussion for Caregivers. We had our largest group ever and Bill provided us with valuable tips and resources to help those who are acting as advocates and caregivers for a loved one and also for those who work as professional caregivers. Bill also reminded us to take care of ourselves if we are in either of these roles and provided valuable self care techniques and coping skills. Please feel free to contact our office at 526-4300 if you would like to schedule a similar conversation at your church, civic group or place of business.
Once again supporters of Crater Community Hospice participated in raising awareness of this vital community asset. The Progressive Dinner in Old Town Petersburg on September,10th was a wonderful event that was very well attended. The goal of this event was to educate the community and show support for our In-Home Respite Care Program. Our In-Home Respite Care program supports the families and caregivers of individuals served by Crater Community Hospice, by offering them a much needed break for rest and revitalization. This program is funded solely by individual donations and your support truly makes a difference.
This was just another way of “Celebrating Life Every Day.” Everyone enthusiastically embraced the fellowship, the gift baskets, the 50/50 raffle and the beautiful music by flutist Iris Schwartz.
Many thanks to all who made this gathering such an enjoyable event!
Bill will share his own personal journey as a caregiver and will provide helpful tips, resources and self care techniques that will benefit both individual and professional caregivers.
