"Great presentation. Even though my mother does not needs assistance now, this knowledge will help me prepare for the next part of my caregiver journey." "Great presentation. I thought I knew all about what was going to be presented. I am glad I came anyway, because I learned a lot." "There is help for us and our loved ones. I am learning that things can get better instead of worse.” “I am now receiving help with grace and appreciation. And I am learning to say “no” when I don’t need help.” “I learning to reframe my thinking. It is important for me and my loved one to remain optimistic about the future!”
