Caregiver Self-Care- February 2/2-3pm

We all know someone who is providing care for someone else. They may be caring for an older parent, a disabled adult child, or a spouse suffering from a traumatic injury or chronic illness. These are our caregivers, and whether they are formal or informal, they give of themselves and rarely think of their needs first. It is a rewarding experience for most, but can also have many challenges. Caregivers experience many difficult emotions and losses along their journey. This webinar will focus on overcoming the challenges of caregiving and will examine compassion fatigue – how to recognize it and how to prevent it with techniques for self-care. 

Objectives:

  • Identify challenges and losses that can occur while caregiving for others.
  • Examine the difficult emotions that caregivers experience and techniques for working through those emotions.
  • Learn about compassion fatigue and the techniques for self-care used to prevent or manage this condition.
