    Caregiver Writing Experience

    10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.Virtual

    Caring for the Caregiver: A reflective and supportive online writing experience Join us!

    Sponsored by The Giving Voice Foundation in partnership with 55 North (Formerly Hyde Park Center for Older Adults)

    Pre-Registration required Nicole Christ: nicolechrist@hpcenter.org

    Annette Januzzi Wick and Pauletta Hansel will lead an online creative writing experience designed to help family caregivers explore the gifts and challenges of their lives through poetry, storytelling and journaling. This is an opportunity to use writing to reflect on your own journey and to share as much or as little as you choose in a supportive and safe circle of other caregivers. No previous writing experience is necessary.

    A Zoom link will be sent to registered participants. Annette and Pauletta are skilled writers, facilitators and caregivers for their mothers with dementia.

    Annette Januzzi Wick is the author of the memoir, I’ll Have Some of Yours, published for those who struggle to find reason, meaning and humanity in the caregiving experience. Pauletta Hansel was Cincinnati’s first Poet Laureate. Her book, Palindrome, poems about her mother, won Berea College’s Weatherford Award. Together and separately, they have led workshops in support of caregivers for the Alzheimer’s Association of Cincinnati and of Knoxville, Arden Courts, the Alois Alzheimer Center, the Caregiver’s Assistance Network, Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio, Episcopal Retirement Services and other organizations.

LATEST TWEETS

Probably someone from the suburbs. They hate paying to park 😉

I wished my parents had the capability to text when they were alive. My dad died eight years ago, and my mother died from #dementia complications two years ago. But I would have loved to capture their wisdom on film in the same way I am giving it out today to my children.
