Wellness Classes & Workshops

These “tools” can reduce everyday stress or help to cope with an illness by supporting your body's natural healing abilities and improving fitness and flexibility. Each is designed to leave you feeling more relaxed, energetic, and alive.

Through our wide range of educational events and activities, you will find reassurance, understanding and encouragement. Our professionals and volunteers know how to promote healing and restore wholeness. And they can help you re-discover the “old you.”

Lifetime Care also offers several programs for people who have Parkinson's Disease and their caregivers, including an exercise class that meets twice a week. Click here for a download about Parkinson's support services.

  • Janus Group and “Among Friends”
    • For surviving spouses who have completed the 8-week SERIES, JANUS & “Among Friends” offer a continuation of grief work.
  • “Griefscape”
    • This seminar for people who work in the healing professions is presented annually in the Fall as a continuing professional education program for nurses, social workers, clergy, or funeral directors who interact with families who have lost a loved one.
  • “Living With Grief” video conference
    • Each Spring, Lifetime Care sponsors the local presentation of this national video conference, featuring experts on various aspects of end-of-life care and grief counseling. Although these programs are intended primarily for professionals (nurses, social workers, clergy, funeral directors) who interact with families who have lost a loved one, caregivers and bereaved people may also find them valuable.
