Caregivers Day of Pampering, January 13 2015

Calling All Caregivers!

Join us at the Village at Cedar Hill on Wednesday, January 13th from 11:30am to 1:30pm as we help you take a break from caregiving! As part of our “Caring for the Caregivers” month in January we are pleased to announce our “Caregiver’s Day of Pampering”.

What is “Caregiver’s Day of Pampering”? It’s a special day of enjoyment, relaxation, and pampering for family members who care for sick or aging loved ones. Caregivers get to relieve some stress, learn ways to maintain good health year round, and meet other caregivers. It is our way to thank caregivers for all they do for their loved ones.

Studies show that caregivers take care of everyone else and put themselves last. Let’s plan to break that pattern for one day. The purpose of this free program is to recharge your batteries and just have fun!

“Caregiving is fulfilling – and stressful. We see these caregivers day after day giving their time and their love. We know some become exhausted from taking care of a chronically-ill family member at home 24/7,” explained Patricia Horn, Community Administrator at Cedar Hill Continuing Care Community. “We are announcing our Day of Pampering to provide these care givers with a much-needed break. This special day is our way of saying ‘Thank you for what you are doing for your family member. We know it’s hard work. Take a break and have some ‘me’ time to get rejuvenated.”
So come take a break and relax on us with…
  • Chair Massages by Green Day Spa of Windsor, VT
  • Aromatherapy
  • Tea & Scones
  • Relaxing Music
  • Gift Bags
Be sure to bring a friend! Please share this information with any caregivers that you think might appreciate some extra pampering. All services are free of charge but appointments are required. Please call 802-674-2254 or click below:
January’s “Caring for the Caregivers” month at Cedar Hill continues on January 19 at 2pm with a free seminar on “How to Beat the Winter Blues” by Bernie Seifert, Coordinator of Mental Health Training at the Northern New Hampshire Geriatric Education Center.  Studies link Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) to living farther away from the equator. Many northerners feel drained, irritable and depressed in the long, dark winter months, and the holidays are an especially tough time for many. Don’t let the New England latitude affect your attitude! Although SAD is common, it can be prevented and treated.  This session will focus on recognizing the signs of and risk factors for SAD, what to do if you suspect that you or someone you know has SAD, and preventing and treating SAD. Learn more:
Visitors are invited to tour the expanded North Village, where we added 20 Independent and Assisted Living Apartments and a State-of-the-Art 20-bed Memory Care Center in 2015. Cedar Hill staff will be available to provide additional information.
