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 June, the theme is “School’s Out for Summer: Leisure Acitivites for the Aging. Helping your loved one develop interests to promote and enrich the the quality of life.”
Date: June 26
Time: 6 – 7 PM
Place: Sunrise of Lincoln Park
2710 N. Clark Street, Chicago, IL
