Artemis March, course at Cambridge Center for Adult Education on January 24, 5:30-7:30

Caregiving for the Dying: Are You Ready?
When: Thursday, January 24, 5:30-7:30 PM
Where: Cambridge Center for Adult Education, 56 Brattle Street, Cambridge
Registration: 617-547-6789 $38

The course given by Artemis March draws on her book, Dying into Grace, and focuses on the caregiving side of the dance.

Family caregivers provide 80% of the long-term care in this country. Tens of millions of us have, are, or will take on increasing responsibility for an aging/dying parent or loved one, but, in our death-phobic culture, few of us are prepared.

This course is designed to give caregivers their bearings in daunting and unfamiliar territory where there is no rewind button, and validate those who have completed a journey by giving shape, structure, and dignity to this culturally devalued role.

Directed to family caregivers, this course also provides useful tools to professionals who support them, as well as to professional caregivers and those who train them.
