MINOOKA – Coping with the demands of caregiving will be shared at Lifetree Café at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 21 at The Shrimp Barn in Minooka.

The program, titled “Care for Caregivers: Meeting the Unique Needs of Those Who Sacrifice for Others,” features a screening of the short film “Life in Reverse.” The film chronicles the experiences of Florence Feldman who, for 10 years, served as a caregiver as her mother slowly sank into dementia.

“Being a caregiver can be both rewarding and exhausting,” Feldman said in a news release. “It’s easy to feel isolated and burdened. Getting the help and support needed to stay sane and healthy, let alone to thrive, is a challenge caregivers face.”

The Lifetree program offers an hour of support and understanding, as well as Feldman’s insights about meeting caregivers’ needs.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is at The Shrimp Barn, 125 W. Mondamin St., Minooka.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to the Rev. Scott Lohman at 630-379-1477 or scott_lohman@sbcglobal.net.
