About the Lunch & Learn Series

Whether you are caring for parents, in-laws, or other loved ones or just want more information for yourself, the Lunch & Learn Series is the perfect opportunity to learn about important elder care topics. Stay tuned for information about the Fall 2016 Lunch & Learn Series. 


 
About the Caregiver Support Group

This is a support group for UK employees who are taking care of parents, in-laws, and other adults in their family. The group provides a supportive atmosphere for caregivers, provides an opportunity for members to help each other through sharing of information and stories, and is a way to learn about resources and other information that pertains to a specific problem or issue. 

5 Reasons to Join the UK Elder Care Support Group

  1. We provide a sense of connection. Meeting and talking with others who understand your feelings and concerns can help ward off feelings of isolation, loneliness, and depression.
  2. You can exchange ideas and learn about available resources.
  3. Establish friendships based on common grounds and interests.
  4. Develop coping strategies to use when caregiving gets challenging.
  5. Learn about the importance of good self-care and tips to attain it.
