Join us as we kick off National Family Caregivers Month with a webinar specifically designed to support and engage family caregivers!

Taking care of a friend or family member is definitely a labor of love. However, caregiving can also be extremely stressful. This presentation will discuss the physical, emotional, and financial stressors that caregivers may face. We will also explore tips and strategies for self-care. Caregivers need to take care of their own well-being in order to be able to care for another person.

Participants will hear current caregiving statistics and facts. They will engage in discussions about the stressors that caregivers face. Participants will be provided with strategies for self-care and resources that may help caregivers navigate their many responsibilities. We will encourage attendees to think about their own experiences with caregiving, past, present, and future; and how to prioritize their own wellbeing.
