Caregiver Retreat In Blue Hill

BLUE HILL — A special retreat for caregivers will be held on Saturday, March 6, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Caregiver Resource Center at Friendship Cottage.


The day includes fun activities for the caregiver, respite care for the adult care receiver and a catered gourmet luncheon.

While the loved one is enjoying the adult day service program, the caregiver will begin the day with making squares for the Caregiver Memory Quilt. When completed, the quilt, made in honor of loved ones, will be placed on display at Friendship Cottage. The day continues with a session of chair yoga for stress reduction. Lunch will be served at 11:30. The yoga instruction and meal are compliments of special guest Eileen Dunn-Kell.

The monthly Caregiver Support Group meets at 1:30 p.m. and newcomers are welcome to attend.

Friendship Cottage is located at 118 Ellsworth Road, Route 172, in Blue Hill. The full day is offered free of charge. Reservations are required for this event. Contact Sonia Turanski at 374-5852.
