Caregivers United 

LOUIS BAY 2ND LIBRARY, 345 LAFAYETTE AVENUE HAWTHORNE, NJ 07506

Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 6:30pm 

Created by Home Helpers of Bergen County, Caregivers United is a group run by caregivers for other caregivers. Everyone will become a caregiver at one point in his or her life. It is a rewarding journey, a stressful journey, and- at times- an overwhelming journey. When the time comes, we are often unprepared and need help but don’t know what to do, who to call, or what steps to take. Caregivers United will provide you with the help you need along your caregiving journey.

This month’s topic will be "Nutrition and The Dementia Patient", presented by Jaclyn Jacobsen, M.S. She will go through the latest research, provide tips on proper nutrition for people who have dementia related diseases and discuss which foods to avoid and which are connected to cognitive decline. With a Master’s degree in Nutrition Sciences and a concentration in education, Jaclyn has extensive experience working in a multitude of wellness settings specializing in the areas of stress- management, weight loss, athletic performance and nutrition education. As a Nutritionist, she is determined to provide an indiviualized experience with every client.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
