THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES OF CAREGIVING
Friday, April 22, 2022, from 1 pm to 3 pm
MacArthur Park Lutheran Church, 2903 Nacogdoches Rd, 78217
Presented by Laura Delz, Alzheimer’s Community Manager at Grace Place. The caregiver role is one that is full of so many emotions and yet the central expression is love. That love is the driving force that pushes us through the hard times that are inevitable. We will talk about the different ways we show and receive love in the role of caregiver to our loved ones as well as how to show love to those caregiving alongside us based on their love language.
*Loved ones will engage in guided Spring themed activities and Bingo with prizes!
