Phelps Hospital teams up with the Westchester Public/Private Partnership for Aging Services to provide new workshops for caregivers.

Phelps Hospital, Northwell Health, in partnership with the Westchester Public/Private Partnership for Aging Services, is providing two new series of free workshops for caregivers beginning in September. The workshops will run for six weeks as part of the hospital’s Care Connections program. The seminars are designed to help caregivers learn how to better manage difficulties and stress without sacrificing their own wellbeing.

“Caregiving is the ultimate act of love, and it requires strength, commitment and sound judgment,” said Ellen Woods, Program Director, Vitality and Care Connections at Phelps Hospital, Northwell Health. “Our Care Connections program offers caregivers the support and resources necessary to navigate the health care system – free of charge.”

A 2020 report from AARP found that more than one in five Americans have provided care to an adult or child with special needs at some point in the past 12 months. This means that there are an estimated 53 million caregivers in the U.S., a sharp increase from the 43.5 million in reported in 2015. With an increasingly aging population, the role a caregiver plays is becoming an even more important one, both functionally and economically.

The Care Connections program was designed by Westchester Public/Private Partnership for Aging Services. The program’s goal is to help ease the burden associated with caregiving by providing guidance and counseling from a caregiver navigator. Free educational workshops and “care baskets” with resource materials and comfort items will also be provided by Phelps Hospital.
