Do you spend several hours a week or more helping a loved one with daily living – housework, driving, grocery shopping – medical care, or financial responsibilities?

Do you sometimes put the needs of your loved one in front of your own?

Are you overwhelmed with the responsibilities of caring for a loved one in your busy life?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, chances are you could use help. AARP’s Prepare to Care workshop provides you with information and resources to help you better care for yourself and the ones you love.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • 5 steps to be prepared for caregiving and how to adjust caregiving plans as needed throughout your caregiving journey.
  • How to connect with other family caregivers to share tips and information.
  • How to find and use resources available to you.

Caring for a loved one can be a rewarding experience, but it can also be challenging. No one is ever completely prepared for the job, especially since caregiving is often a long-term responsibility that may become more difficult over time. Join us to get tools and resources for the road ahead.


When: Wednesday, March 27, 2019 @ 6:00 pm.

Where: Vesper Hall, 400 NW Vesper St., Blue Springs, MO 64014

Complimentary refreshments will be provided.

RSVP is requested as space is limited! We only have a few seats left!

Sandwiched KC is working with our local AARP to host this event, because AARP ❤s caregivers. AARP wants family caregivers to know there is support and resources out there that can help make this important work a little easier. You don’t have to do this on your own.
