St. Luke’s Provides Support for Caregivers

DULUTH, Minn. –

St. Luke’s worked to help all–important care givers make their jobs easier and more effective.

Usually the care giver is a family member or close friend who chooses to take care of someone with a life altering illness with little or no pay.

St. Luke’s Regional Cancer Center held a lecture tonight, providing care givers important tools and information on how to cope both physically and emotionally.

They say as a care giver it’s important to take care of yourself.

“Remember to take care of yourself first because if you don’t care for yourself no one else is going to you know the old analogy on the air plane put you own oxygen mask first so that you can do a job of providing the care for your loved one,” said Ann Forest Clark, Occupational Therapist with St. Luke’s.

The event was free and open to the public and if you missed it there will be another one May 14th.
