Caregiving Workshop Offered in Sterling


Caring for a dependent adult is much like riding a roller coaster. At times you are at the top experiencing the rewards that come from caring for another person, and at other times you may feel like you are plunging down a long hill.

“Caregiving Relationships: A Workshop Series” will be offered at the Whiteside County Senior Center by University of Illinois Extension  . This workshop series is designed for caregivers of older adults, to help address the many issues and challenges that they face in their current role.

Informational sessions led by Family Life Educator Karla Belzer will focus on the mixed emotions of caregiving, grief issues for caregivers, relationships and communication, and caregiver self-care.  Sessions will be held from 12:30 p.m. -1:30 p.m. on October 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st at the Whiteside County Senior Center.  The workshop series is free and open to the public.  Pre-registration is required and available at or by calling 815-632-3611. For more information, visit the University of Illinois Extension event calendar online at or call 815-632-3611.
