On Our Own
Here is a monthly opportunity for those living alone to share the triumphs and challenges of life with a group of friendly fellow travelers. In today’s world, many are somewhat isolated and have few chances to discuss day-to-day events, or significant choices. Studies have shown the positive impact that interpersonal relationships have on health and well-being. Come and give us a try, for laughter, support and good company.
One-on-one support is available to individuals caring for a loved one, even if that person does not live with you. Janet is available to meet with family caregivers here at Dickinson Hall, or in someone’s home. Call Janet at 847-810-4678 with questions, for referrals to local resources, or if you need to talk.
