Forum offers tools for caregivers

The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly and the Jewish Home at Home present “Toolbox for Caregivers — Providing People with the Tools They Need & the Skills to Use Them” on Tuesday, November 10, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the JCC.

Alzheimer’s and other age-related illnesses affect the entire family, leaving millions of people to act as caregivers. Often those caregivers are overwhelmed with stress and the difficult decisions that are added to what already are full and stressful lives.

That is why the JCC, in collaboration with the Jewish Home, is offering the free, informative forum, planned to help caregivers. Topics include: Choosing the Right Program/Service for Your Loved One; Tried & True Tips from Experienced Caregivers; Navigating the System and Making the Most of Community Resources; and Caregivers — How Do You Care for Yourselves?

For information, call Judi Nahary at (201) 408-1450 or email To register for Toolbox for Caregivers, email Susan Lilly at the Jewish Home at Home at or call (201) 750-4247.
