Member + Loved-ones Meeting (#2)

  • Aug 16, 2014 · 1:30 PM
  • Holly's House

Notice: If you want to attend but this date/time is not convenient, please suggest another date.

This will be our 2nd meeting geared specifically toward loved-ones where members can bring spouses, family members, friends, anyone. Loved-ones of people with a chronic illness definitely have their own hardships having to see someone they care about suffering and they need support themselves. They can learn more about our illness, we can answer any questions they may have, they can share their concerns and struggles with us, and help us learn what we can do to help them understand and cope during the day-to-day. By attending this meeting they could use their new knowledge for support and understanding and also know ways for themselves to cope.

We'll be prepared with lots of valuable information specifically for the loved-ones in a non-pushy, loving way. Not just info about "us" but info about "them"! For example, some of the topics we’ll talk about at this meeting include tips on living with someone in chronic pain, supporting an ill partner, ways to cope with a lack of support, and more.

If you know anyone who could benefit from this, please feel free to invite them! Relation, age, gender, etc does not matter.

    Was great for my husband to hear others talk about their similar issues with the disease. Thank you.

    Great conversations with members and their families. It was helpful hearing other spouses perspectives, especially.

    Hi Holly,
    Steve and I will do our best to attend. My cousin is renting a home in Pewaukee for 1/2 of July and all of August. We are in the process of scheduling a weekend get together, and with his schedule it is extremely difficult. Hopefully I should know within the next two weeks or so.
