Caregiver support group to focus on fall prevention

Kathy Herter, registered nurse and community information and referral specialist for SUN Home Health, is scheduled to be a guest speaker at Albright LIFE’s (Living Independently For Elders) upcoming Caregiver Support Group at 12:30 p.m. March 20.

Herter will focus on how to prevent falls for both the care receiver and the caregiver. Attendees will learn common trip and fall hazards to avoid, as well as simple tips that will help make caring for a loved one safer.

A free lunch will be served at the LIFE center, 901 Memorial Ave., during the support group. Call Albright LIFE at 322-LIFE (5433) by March 18 to register.

The Caregiver Support Group meets the third Wednesday of each month. It provides an opportunity for individuals caring for an aging loved one to share their experiences and learn from each other.
