Do you have a home that needs to be cleaned out? An estate sale to manage? Does taking care of the logistics of your elderly parents’ life overwhelm you? Too busy to get all your own errands done? Do you have a second home that needs overseeing? Two local women have recently combined their experience in real estate and direct sales to form a new personal assistant company called Check It Off LLC. Susan Smith and Diane Carroll saw a need for helping others in their everyday lives and decided to go into business together to meet that need. The list of what they can do is lengthy and if they can’t do it, they have the resources to help you find someone who can. For further information, they can be reached at 860-480-8091 or at their website, www.checkitoffllc.com.
What is the NAMI Basics Education Program?
NAMI Basics is a free, six-session program designed for parents and other family caregivers of children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral difficulties. NAMI Basics helps parents and other family caregivers of children to understand the illnesses that are causing those behavioral difficulties, and the critical role families play in the treatment of those illnesses. The program is taught by trained teachers who are also the parents or family caregivers of individuals who experienced emotional or behavioral difficulties prior to age 13.
NAMI Connecticut in partnership with Prime Time House will offer its NAMI Basics Education Program for the Fall 2016 beginning September 26th 2016. It will be held on Mondays from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at Prime Time House, Torrington.
“This is such a great step by step program that walks parents every step of the way. It is as if you are holding their hand through it all.”
“The course is inclusive of almost all aspects of family and child resources. I could have spent a lifetime getting all this information on my own. I feel supported, strong and ready to go forward.”
“NAMI Basics bridges the gap. It provides help that can’t be found in a doctor’s office.”
