A workshop for those dedicated to the care of others—but who put their own health and social needs on the back burner.

One of the greatest challenges of being a family caregiver is maintaining one’s own physical and emotional health—all too often, caregivers neglect their health and well being. We cannot stop the impact of a chronic illness on a loved one. However, we, as caregivers, need to be responsible for our own self-care.

 

  • Understand why those who care for others often feel sad, guilty and alone, and how you can change these feelings
  • Learn specific tools to help you reduce stress; change negative thinking; ask for what you need from others; and take positive action steps that will benefit YOU!
