College of the Canyons and the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center will host the next Family Caregivers Workshop, titled “Caring for the Caregiver: Reintegration,” at the Center in Newhall on Saturday, January 27 from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
This event is designed to offer assistance to current and potential family caregivers by focusing on post-caregiving reintegration for senior caregivers after suffering the loss of their loved ones.
The workshop will also feature representatives from Volunteer Services at Henry Mayo Memorial Hospital, the city of Santa Clarita Volunteer Services, Hands on SCV, the Volunteer Bureau at COC, and the SCV Senior Center to provide information and answer questions.
“The workshop will offer different perspectives from those who have made this transition successfully and provide participants with resources they may need to assist in this transition,” said Paul Wickline, dean of the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences at COC.
“We hope this series of workshops continues to empower and educate community members who are caring for elderly loved ones,” he said.
