December 2020

NCC NEWS AND UPDATES

Neuro Community Care will be completing its first cohort of ‘Operation RISE’ this week. Operation RISE is a program designed for caregivers with the Wounded Warrior Project’s Independence Program. The program will offer separate 4-week sessions which include: information and resources, discussion topics surrounding respite and wellness, providing support to each other, and an opportunity to engage and empower others. The first session was built around the theme “Rise and Reset” with a focus on helping caregivers identify their interests and hobbies. They worked on an art project led by Art Therapist Catherine Ventura and discussed activities that helped caregivers reclaim their energy and find their joy. NCC plans to continue Operation RISE with a new group of 18 caregivers in January.

Have a healthy holiday season and happy new year! We look forward to working with you in 2021!
