How does it work?

Taking Care of SoMEone Else!

A dynamic 2-hour workshop for YOU, the caregiver! The caregiving of your family member may extend over many years, and the tendency may be to set your life aside during this time. You are invited to stay open to change, to think about other ways you might be handling your caregiving situation, and how you can take action on YOUR OWN behalf by learning a few tools to help YOU take care of YOU!
Subjects covered are: steps to identify sources of stress and how to manage them, negative self-talk, inability to ask for help, and identifying what we can and cannot change.

Decisions, Directions and Reflections: When To Move Your Loved One to a Care Facility

In this workshop you will learn how to acknowledge your true feelings, put any "broken promises" into perspective, and to recognize the reality of your situation in order to take positive action, respect your own life and needs.
