Care for the Caregiver
Are you a caregiver for an elder or someone with special needs? If the answer is yes:
Are you anxious about facing another day?
Are you exhausted by worry and sleepless nights?
Are you frustrated that you can’t do more or that you’re missing out on life?
Are you feeling isolated, and feeling that you’re missing out on life?
Do you find yourself sometimes angry about things the way they are?
If you answered yes to any of these questions you are likely experiencing stress and run the risk of caregiver burnout.
In this 2-1/2 hour workshop, we will explore caregiver’s duties & responsibilities, the caregiving journey, and the symptoms of caregiver stress and burnout … and provide you with practical self-care solutions.
