This year, nearly 40 percent of adults in the U.S. will find themselves in the role of caring for an elderly or chronically ill loved one. Most of us are unprepared for what has become known as the universal occupation.
To help caregivers, we have created a series of classes to provide education, resources and support.  Here’s  the  schedule of classes  Family Caregiver Education Series .

If you are a family caregiver, we hope you will have an opportunity to attend one, or all of these sessions. Feel free to share this information with your family and friends.

Cancer is not a disease that is easily dealt with, treated or even understood. While treatments can vary for every diagnosis, they often include chemotherapy and radiation, both of which are downright uncomfortable, usually with very painful side effects.  Increasingly, complementary healing therapies including massage, acupuncture, deep breathing meditation and guided visual imagery are gaining acceptance as proven methods for helping patients find comfort and stay strong to fight the fight during their chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  These healing therapies can provide relief for neuropathy, anxiety, stress, aches, fatigue, nausea and pain.
