Boulder County Area Agency on Aging Offers Free Online Workshop for Family and Informal Caregivers in Boulder County

Family caregivers encouraged to register for upcoming online event that begins Monday, July 17

Boulder, Colo. - Boulder County Area Agency on Aging invites interested caregivers to participate in the upcoming class, “Hero's Journey of the Caregiver.” This program is a ten-hour weekly course spanning five weeks and will begin this July. The course is intended for informal and family caregivers of older adults and will focus on providing participants with tools to help ensure that they thrive, not just survive, during caregiving. Hero's Journey of the Caregiver is inspired by the work of Joseph Campbell. Using a multi-media approach (video clips, art, poetry, self-reflection, and discussion), the course will offer opportunities for the "inner hero" to show up in caregiving and ultimately move through obstacles on this journey.

  • What: Hero’s Journey five-week online workshop
  • When: Mondays, July 17 – August 14, 1-3 p.m.
  • Where: Online via Zoom Platform

Hero’s Journey is open to Boulder County residents providing care for a relative, partner, or friend who is age 60 or over, or of any age if the person has dementia. There is no charge for the course, but donations are appreciated.

To register for this upcoming workshop, contact Rebekah Van Sweden at 303-441-3945 or InfoCaregiver@bouldercounty.org.
