Dutiful Daughters is a free monthly support group for caregivers struggling with the emotional and physical challenges of caring for an elderly parent or spouse while often times balancing the demands of other family members and career.

Each month at Sunrise Assisted Living of Lincoln Park, they hold a discussion hosted by their Director of Community Relations, Jennifer Joers and their Reminiscence Coordinator, James Thomson, who has been certified by the Alzheimer’s Association to lead support groups.  (I mentioned this group before briefly in my post about Alzheimer’s support groups.)  Above is a picture I took of Jim and some of the residents and caregivers at Sunrise from last year’s Memory Walk.

Each month they have a different topic or theme.  For May, the theme is “Difficult Decisions: Funeral Planning – Planning ahead to honor your parents according to their wishes.”

Date:  May 29th
Time: 6 – 7 PM

Place:  Sunrise of Lincoln Park
2710 N. Clark Street, Chicago, IL

RSVP to Jennifer at 773/244-0005
