LEWISTON — Coping with the demands of caregiving will be discussed at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 18, the Lifetree Cafe, 1919 Lisbon Road.

The program, titled “Care for Caregivers: Meeting the Unique Needs of Those Who Sacrifice for Others,” will feature a screening of the short film, “Life in Reverse.” The film chronicles the experiences of Florence Feldman who, for 10 years, served as a caregiver as her mother slowly sank into dementia.

“Being a caregiver can be both rewarding and exhausting,” says Feldman. “It’s easy to feel isolated and burdened. Getting the help and support needed to stay sane and healthy, let alone to thrive, is a challenge caregivers face.”

The Lifetree program offers an hour of support and understanding, as well as Feldman’s insights about meeting caregivers’ needs. Admission to the 60-minute event is free.
