Care for the Caregiver: Self-Care
Care for the Caregiver: Self-Care Program
As a caregiver:
- Are you angry about things the way they are?
- Are you anxious about facing another day?
- Are you exhausted because of ever present concerns and sleepless nights?
- Are you frustrated that you can’t do more or that you’re missing out on life?
- Are you feeling isolated?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions you are likely experiencing stress and are at risk of caregiver burnout.
In this interactive workshop we identify causes of caregiver stress that can lead to burnout if left unchecked.
- Caregiver’s duties & responsibilities
- The caregiving journey
- Caregiver burnout
- Stress in caregivers
… and provide practical solutions!
Note: This program will be of value to those caregivers providing care for individuals other than elders as well.
