Healthy Self: Heal Thy Self – Caregivers Saathi

Date: Saturday, April 13th
Time: 2 – 4 PM
Venue: A4104, Oberoi Exquisite, Aba Karmarkar Road, Goregaon East
Charges: Free

Who’s a caregiver? Do we recognise one when we read or hear his/ her story? Given our social culture, a family caregiver often goes unrecognised and unappreciated. We sometimes fail to recognise the challenges and needs of a caregiver within our family or social circle.

Meetups by Caregiver Saathi show why it becomes necessary for a caregiver to understand their personal needs on top of the care receivers needs. They also need to find ways to address these needs and learn to take care of own self and by doing so, they also can provide similar care to their care receiver.

To register call Bhavana Issar on 9326161735 or 9833312168 OR
