MONROE - Many people don't realize that they are a caregiver. Caregivers could be a 23 year-old who's going back to school and caring for her parents; someone in their 90s for a spouse, dear friend or sibling; or a member of the "sandwich generation" who is caring for children or teenagers and an aging parent.

Some caregivers become completely overwhelmed. Caregiving can be emotionally, physically, and spiritually draining. Caregivers who are this overwhelmed can easily become very isolated, and feel very disconnected from others who might provide support.

Mary Brintnall-Peterson, Albany, will give a presentation and discussion on caregiving at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 11 at the Behring Senior Center of Monroe. Brintnall-Peterson is UW-Extension's Professor and Specialist on Aging and Family Development. More information is available by calling Bridget Mouchon, Green County Family Living Agent at (608) 328-9440.
