Caregiver Support Group Launch at Milpark


We are launching a caregiver support group at Milpark Trauma Conference Room. It will be on 4 August from 11am to 1pm. Anyone that is a caregiver of a burn survivor is welcome.

The journey is not only difficult for the burn survivor but for the care giver as well. You are the one that has to assist with the dressing changes, keeping the morale of the burn survivor up, while your might feel like crashing down beside you. You are the rock, but even some rocks need a little support here and there.

Together with Netcare Milpark Hospital, we would like to extend our support as well as from caregivers who have been down the road and can assist you with what you are going through right now.

We would like to invite the nurses, doctors and paramedics as well. If it were not for them, what would your life be like today. Perhaps a little bit of encouragement can further inspire them to continue moving forward and making a difference in the lives of burn survivors.

So this Saturday, 4 August 2012, 11am-1pm if you have been a caregiver of a burn survivor and would like to join us please inbox me for more details.

See you there!
