    We are holding online individual counseling sessions for those who have anxiety and worry about caregiving and who experience feelings such as “I’m extremely stressed because I’m worried about providing long-term care for my parents,” “I’m anticipating providing long-term care for my parents and have no idea where to start,” and “I don’t think I can take on both child raising and long-term care at the same time.” The counseling sessions are provided by a certified social worker once every other month from June.
