JFSNJ offers caregiver program

Jewish Family Service of North Jersey is offering a mindfulness group for caregivers; it is open to all caregivers, including adult children and spouses.

The eight-session workshop, particularly aimed at unpaid full- and part-time caregivers, is coordinated by Melanie Lester, JFSNJ’s community outreach coordinator. It incorporates a variety of mindfulness techniques, including meditation, to help recharge and cope with the stress and responsibility of providing care.

The support group, made possible with a grant from WellCare Health Plans, will be held in the evening in either Wayne or Fair Lawn depending on the makeup of the group. It is free, but advance registration is required; space is limited. Call Ms. Lester at (973) 595-0111.
