Coping with the demands of caregiving will be shared at Lifetree Café on Monday, Jan. 15, at 2 p.m.

The program, titled “Care for Caregivers: Meeting the Unique Needs of Those Who Sacrifice for Others,” features a screening of the short film Life in Reverse. The film chronicles the experiences of Florence Feldman who, for 10 years, served as a caregiver as her mother slowly sank into dementia.

“Being a caregiver can be both rewarding and exhausting,” says Feldman. “It’s easy to feel isolated and burdened. Getting the help and support needed to stay sane and healthy, let alone to thrive, is a challenge caregivers face.”

The Lifetree program offers an hour of support and understanding, as well as Feldman’s insights about meeting caregivers’ needs.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café meets at Jalapeńos, 314 N. Second Ave., Sandpoint.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Stan at 208-304-6465, stan@followcommunity.org.
