CANCELLED - Caregiver Educational Series: Self Care and Respite
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Don’t forget the caregiver…

Caring for a loved one can be all consuming and often, caregivers put their own needs last … if at all. But ignoring one’s own physical and emotional needs are not only harmful to the caregiver, it also puts the loved one being cared for at risk.  What happens to loved ones if the caregiver gets sick . . . or worse? Discover techniques and tips on how to incorporate self -care, opportunities for respite, and tapping into available resources into caregiving with Joan Wright, Certified Dementia Practitioner from NVNA and Hospice.
