Caregivers Retreat

Caregivers Retreat

How Did the Retreat Go?

I am very happy that I was able to attend. It was very informative and helpful. Met wonderful people. Thank you so much.

Project New hope and other attendees made me feel welcome and supported right away. The knowledge that I gained is already putting a positive impact on my life, and I know this will only continue helping my abilities thru life.

Being with other caregivers gives me a sense of peace.

To know that you are not alone is the best medicine available.

Jennifer and Jeannine were amazing.

Bill, Ann, Jeanine, etc., do a wonderful job of creating a safe and supportive week, balancing care, education, activities, and free time.  Jennifer Foxworthy is an excellent presenter as well as all off the other presenters. I got a lot of insight from all of them. Jeanine’s story was enlightening. I am so grateful for a get-away-from-responsibility week surrounded by the caring and compassionate folks of PNH.

Retreat awesome. Had fun!  Thank you!!


Postponed until 2022
