Self Care for the Caregiver

May 8, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Self Care for the Caregiver

Caregiving can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Whether you are in the profession of caregiving or taking care of a loved one, it is important to remember to recharge your batteries. For family members, caregiving can also lead to additional pressures, such as financial strain, family conflict, and social withdrawal. Over time, caregiver stress can lead to burnout, a condition marked by irritability, fatigue, problems with sleep, weight gain, feelings of helplessness or hopelessness, and social isolation.

Join Family Resource Network for an evening learning about self-care for the caregiver. Learn techniques for managing your own mental and physical health while caring for a loved one.
