The Sandwich Generation:
Balancing Your Personal Life With the Needs of Your Older Parents or Loved Ones
Wednesday, December 7
Noon - 1 p.m.
Most of us reach a point in life when parents or elderly relatives begin to require more attention and time, and sometimes, our financial support as well. Caring for an older person can be complicated and is a personal matter. No two situations are the same and there are no simple solutions. You can, though, benefit from following some practical suggestions. This workshop provides an overview of information to help the participant cope with their personal life while dealing with their elder's needs.
2022 Holiday Challenge
Maintain, Don’t Gain This Holiday Season
November 14 – December 31
Many Americans gain between 1 and 5 pounds each holiday season. While it might not sound like much, most people never manage to lose those extra pounds. You are invited to join the annual Eat Smart, Move More, Maintain, don’t gain! Holiday Challenge. Rather than focusing on trying to lose weight, this FREE seven-week challenge provides you with strategies and resources to help maintain your weight throughout the holiday season.
All Holiday Challenge material will be delivered directly to your inbox when the program begins. We have seen that the more you participate, the more likely you are to maintain or lose weight. You will receive the following:
- Weekly newsletters
- Weekly challenges
- Healthy recipes
- Daily tips
- Access to a private Facebook group
- Tools & Resources
We are all in this together, let's maintain and not gain this year!
