The Demere Center for Living is almost ready! Located off Chatham Parkway at 6000 Business Center Drive, the final touches are being added and landscaping and signage is coming soon. The result of a $3 million community capital campaign, the Center will house the community programming offered by our not-for-profit hospice: The Steward Center for Palliative Care, Full Circle bereavement support and our new Edel Caregiver Institute.
Set to be finished by early summer, we are excited to show you how beautiful this place is both inside and out! And we are particularly excited to open the Edel Caregiver Institute which will provide caregivers with a full array of training and support. Courses will focus on education from the time of diagnosis, wellness for the caregiver, legal/financial classes, and more.
Stay tuned for details of the ribbon -cutting in September; we would love all our supporters to join us and be aware of this new community resource. If you have any questions or would like more information about the volunteer and/or community help for caregivers available through the Edel Caregiver Institute, please contact coordinator Paula Hudson at 912-629-1331.
