The session runs from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the Martha Spirituality Centre at SDU Place on Great George Street in Charlottetown.
Shea sees caregivers as those persons caring for family members with chronic or terminal illnesses. She has experienced both sides of the caregiver/patient relationship, and has extensive professional experience in dealing with persons with chronic illness.
She hopes that this might be a time for restoration and strengthening for those who are so important in the caring of their loved ones. This half day will includeinput, scripture, sharing, recommendations for coping, prayer and music.
Shea resides in New York City with her husband Joe and they spend about 10 days a month in their home in Victoria, P.E.I.
Cost for the session is $20, payable at the door, and a morning refreshment break will be provided. Because the group needs to be a limited size, it is necessary to register as soon as possible. Call 367-3103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org on or before Feb. 12 .
Guests are asked to use the entrance at the back of the building.
