East Wichita Caregiver Support Group set for Aug. 4

NEWTON, Kan. (July 22, 2015) – Prairie View’s East Wichita Caregiver Support Group, open to caregivers for older adults, meets from 3 to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 4 at Prairie View’s Legacy Park office, 9333 E. 21st St. N., Wichita, Kansas.

Sharie Quattlebaum will present the program on “Putting the Fun Back into Caregiving.” She is a licensed specialist clinical social worker at Prairie View and facilitator for this monthly caregiver group.

“The goal for this program is to help caregivers with ideas to make caregiving more enjoyable for them and their care recipient,” Quattlebaum says.

The group offers education, mutual support and problem solving with others who are dealing with similar caregiving situations. This includes caregivers whose care receiver has any illness, including dementia. Admission is free and open to the public.

This program is funded in part by the Kansas Department on Aging through the Older Americans Act of 1965 and administered by the Central Plains Area Agency on Aging.
