12oct6:00 pm7:30 pmFeaturedCaregiving: It’s a Whole New World

Event Details

After endless hours engaging with hundreds of patients, survivors, families, caregivers and healthcare professionals, Monica Vest Wheeler has captured the heart of coping with the emotional and everyday challenges of brain-related injuries, illnesses and diseases through her books, speaking and photography. This month: “Don’t Hide Everything from the Kids.” Many families are embarrassed when certain injuries, illnesses and diseases affect a loved one’s physical abilities, cognition or emotional behavior, and try to hide it from the outside world. This exclusion may include other family members and adult children, especially those who live out of town. Learn ways to share good and bad news, and why social isolation is one of the worst things you can do to someone who has a health challenge. Don’t be one of the families who leaves the doctor’s office, goes home and shuts the door forever.
