“Time Out” is a stress reduction program for family caregivers offered as part of the Caregivers’ Connections program.

The goal of “Time Out” is to provide specific, individualized education and care aimed at reducing stress, and to provide these services in a time and place convenient for the caregivers. Individual and group sessions are offered by qualified staff and focus on helping caregivers identify stress factors in their lives, learn about the impact of stress, and experience specific techniques that will help relieve their stress. Caregivers are able to choose from a variety of techniques including meditation, journaling, music, art, yoga, reiki, jin shin jyutsu, massage, emotional freedom technique, and others.

Group sessions are held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month from 1-2:30 pm at our offices. Individual sessions are available as well. Trained volunteers are available to sit with loved ones while caregivers attend.

If interested, please call or email.

All of these services are free of charge.
