CareBrigade: Don’t Go Thru a Serious Illness/Surgery Alone! Create a “Just in Case” CareBrigade for Yourself or a Loved One

Tuesday, April 18, 10 AM – noon
Greenwood Senior Center
This is a free training, laying the groundwork to create for yourself, your family/friends at a distance, and even your neighbors, a “just in case, just in time” CareBrigade, a sort of flash mob of support.  By the end of the training, you will know: what support roles even a newly diagnosed patient needs, whom to invite to play each role, and you will be able to use the CareBrigade’s website to access forms and FREE online technology tools to support you and others in fulfilling those roles, even over distance.   Open to everyone, not just Village members, so bring a friend! RSVP to village@phinneycenter.org or 206-789-1217
