Injury from falling is a major risk for older adults and people with disabilities. Click HERE to review information on how to prevent falls from the Office for the Aging.
A free workshop titled "Creative Self-care for Caregivers" will be presented by Emily Millen, LCAT, to family caregivers of older adults on Thursday, March 5, 6:30 PM- 8:00 PM at the Tompkins County Office for the Aging, 214 W. Martin Luther King, Jr./State Street, Ithaca.
Ms. Millen, a certified art therapist, will discuss self-care practices that are most soothing to the nervous system and then lead participants into an image-making experience that will help them access a deeply creative, rejuvenating state that allows for respite from thinking, planning and multitasking. Participants will leave the workshop with a meaningful personal healing image and a process they can use as needed to access this intuitive, restful place.
Register for the workshop by calling the Office for the Aging, 274-5492, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
