The Friends of the Dartmouth Libraries and Coastal Neighbors Network will host “Realistic Resilience for Caregivers” at Southworth Library on May 8, 3 p.m.
The talk will feature Janet Cromer, a national speaker on mental health issues for family caregivers and health professionals. She will offer a one-hour interactive session on experiences common to new and long-term caregivers.
Janet is a licensed medical and psychiatric RN, author, and caregiver herself. She cared for her husband Alan for seven years after he suffered a severe brain injury, and wrote a memoir, “Professor Cromer Learns to Read: A Couple’s New Life After Brain Injury.”
Members of Coastal Neighbors Network will be present to answer questions about that organization, as will members of the board of Friends of Dartmouth Libraries.
The talk will be held at the Southworth Library, 732 Dartmouth St. The event is handicap accessible, free, and open to the public.
