Seasons of Care, a Day for Caregivers with Mary Vaccaro, spiritual care director, Kindred (formerly Gentiva)  Hospice
Saturday, April 29, 2017  10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Lowell Campus


Being a caregiver is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences that life can offer.  It comes to us in seasons.  Join Mary Vaccaro, spiritual care director, Kindred (formerly Gentiva) Hospice,  for a time to explore and reflect on these seasons of caring.  This will be a time for caregivers to relax, reflect and regroup, through stories, silence, prayer, nature, music, art and humor.  Lunch is included.
