More and more adult children are helping care for an older parent or other relative. But what help is available to the caregiver?
The Utah State University Extension Service will offer the second in a four-part series of free public lectures discussing ways of dealing with the emotional stress of caring for an elderly relative as well as the commuinty resources available to help provide support.Two sessions are offered on Thursday, May 2, from 1 to 3 p.m. or 7 to 9 p.m. Both sessions will be in Room 1400 on the main floor of the County Administration Building, 100 E. Center. The speaker will be Phyllis Hansen, coordinator of IHC Hospice.
