 Our Bereaved Caregivers Workshop is a special, no cost, virtual weekend workshop for former full-time caregivers whose loved one died within the past 18 months.

Friday, April 30 - Sunday, May 2, 2021

One of the greatest gifts we can give to a loved one is giving up a part of our life and caring for them during an illness. One of the most painful experiences is the loss of our loved one and the end of our role as caregiver.

 

CaringMatters is hosting a weekend virtual workshop for former full-time caregivers for a loved one who has died within the past 18 months.

  • Resident of Montgomery County, MD

  • Able to use Zoom

  • No charge to participants

Participants will:

  • Connect with other former caregivers who "get it" and have "walked in their shoes"

  • Practice self-care and relaxation

  • Share their caregiving experience and their grief

  • Commemorate their loved one and express their gratitude for the time they had together
