Staying Healthy: For Caregivers & Those Being Cared For


 Rachel Yurdin, Clinical Social Worker for Rehabilitation Associates, Inc.


Caregiving is a very important topic that most people will need to tackle at some point in their life. When it comes to diabetes, a caregiver can provide valuable support to ensure that the person being cared for manages their diabetes and reduces their risk of diabetes-related health complications. Come learn about helpful strategies for being an effective diabetes caregiver (as well as how to manage being on the other side of the equation as the receiver of care). We will address communication strategies, making the most of contacts with healthcare providers and, of course, dealing with the diabetes police!   



The Diabetes Support Group is held the second Tuesday of each month, September- June, from 1-2 PM at the Fairfield Senior Center, Room 14. Pre-registration is not required and the program is free. If the Fairfield Public Schools are closed or delayed due to bad weather, the Senior Center will be closed and programs will be cancelled. Please call    203-256-3150 for further information about this program, which is sponsored by the Town of Fairfield Health Department in collaboration with the Fairfield Senior Center.
