Participate in this four-part workshop which offers family caregivers an opportunity to process the day-to-day experience, as well as a time for reflection. Sharing archival images and making new ones, participants add words and find a space for conversation, listening and enjoying a time-out. Anyone is welcome to join the group. It is ideal if you are currently a caregiver, but participants can relate the material to any loved one. Materials and cameras provided. The program will meet in person Tuesdays in April 2022 at 3:00 pm at the Tenley Friendship Neighborhood Library.
