2016 Annual Caregiver's Retreat

Hosted by: PLAN
Date: Spetember 16th - 18th, 2016
Location: The Bowen Island Lodge
Registration: Available Online, Single Occupancy $250 ($300 after Aug 15), Double Occupancy $400 ($450 after Aug 15)

This special weekend retreat is designed to support and nourish family caregivers. It offers an opportunity to feel rejuvenated and renewed with a gentle schedule of activities including nature walks, painting and collaging, sharing stories, guided meditation, as well as alone time for personal reflection and relaxation. All delicious meals will be included.

Being the primary support for a loved one who is vulnerable or who has a disability can be an all consuming and sometimes overwhelming experience. Some of us feel isolated, exhausted and disconnected from ourselves outside of our caregiving role.

“When I’m not caring for others, who am I?”

Plan Institute invites you to join with other caregiving individuals and couples who are looking for a renewed sense of self and deeper intimacy with their partners, friends and community.

We hope this will be a wonderful break in your busy lives to share rest and rejuvenation with others.
