Providing care for another person is a very important role. That care is
often given to a close loved one, such as your mother, father, spouse
or even a close friend. Becoming a care provider can be an adjustment
and if an accident or illness takes place, the need can come without warning.
It’s also possible it may start by assisting with small tasks that

If you are planning ahead or are currently taking care of a family member,
our upcoming classes can make the process easier for both you and your
loved one. The classes include resources and education to help you get
organized and ready for your caregiving journey.
MHP will host five Saturday sessions as part of our
Prepare to Care series, with topics that include:
Starting the Conversation, Forming Your Team, Making a Plan, Finding Support, and
Caring for Yourself. Simply call to reserve your FREE spot. You can attend one or all sessions.
Hot coffee and fresh donuts await you while you prepare for whatever the
future may hold.
Why should you come? Because:
- A crisis for your loved one never comes at a convenient time
- Many people avoid the conversation about caregiving and end-of-life planning,
but you can learn ways to start it
- You’ll receive important information for the future, whether you
need it now or need it later—and you can always share it with those you love.
The first session is Saturday, January 26, at 10:00 a.m. in the lower level
auditorium of the MHP Medical Center. Call or email Ralanda Smallfelt
