As a wife, mother, caregiver daughter, full-time employee of the Rothkoff Law Group, member of the PTA at my six-year old son’s school, and  “official driver” to all of my son’s extra-curricular activities, there are many times that I feel overwhelmed and alone in my efforts to balance all my commitments and roles.

Especially, when it comes to caring for my parents. Like you, I ask myself, “Could I do more?” Or, “When is it okay to say, ‘no,’ so I could focus on my own sanity?”

That is why our law firm started our monthly Caregiver Support Group. We have created an open, non-judgmental space, in which you could discuss and we (collectively) could identify strategies to help you attempt to balance your multiple commitments. Our office has also lined up speakers to help you become aware of resources in the community, which you could contact in your time of need.

So, please feel free to come to our Cherry Hill Office, and bring a friend.

You can view our monthly caregiver support group schedule here.

We look forward to guiding you through this journey of caregiving, starting in April 2017.
