Wintertime Blues: A Telephonic Workshop for Caregivers

Thursday, December 12th, 7-8:30pm
Over the telephone, from the comfort of your own home
Many people feel “blue”during wintertime, for many different reasons. The weather’s bad, the days are short, and you may feel isolated from friends and family. If you’re a caregiver who’s feeling blue, you are not alone. Join us for a free workshop that will give you a chance to connect with other caregivers, while learning what you can do to fight those wintertime blues.
Registration Required: Contact Megan Nelson at 718-596-8789 ext. 307, or mnelson@heightsandhills.org
