August Classes for Caregivers

July 25, 2022

From the Office for Social Ministry

We give thanks for all caregivers, especially family members who offer daily services to their loved ones who are sick, frail or aging. Yet many times they often forget to care for their own health and wellness. St. Francis Healthcare System of Hawaii acknowledges this important need and continues to offer resource information and personal wellness to sustain caregivers during the long haul.

For example, a variety of classes offer lessons on staying hydrated during the hot summer months; how to maintain proper diet and posture, resolve conflicts without blame; and cope with certain conditions such as diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, and urinary incontinence. Wellness Classes encompass gentle movements to reduce stiffness and improve circulation, as well as exercise the brain and body through Yoga Tai Chi, healthy Lymphatic flow, Boxing and Zumba. 

Most classes are taught virtually through Zoom. Thanks to generous donors, most of the sessions are free of charge!
