Caring for the Caregiver Workshop

Caregivers provide care, compassion, understanding, presence, dependability and dedication for those receiving care. However, while these traits may be the focal point for the recipient, beneath the surface, caregivers often provide for others while struggling with states of depletion. Traditionally, depletion is known to emerge as fatigue, exhaustion and burnout, and often sneaks up unannounced. However, depletion may show up in more subtle ways such as moments of intolerance, being unable to say no, sleeplessness and excessive worry.

This workshop will provide an understanding and recognition of the symptoms of caregiver depletion. Recognizing when depletion is active in caregiving situations and addressing it, gives the caregiver the potential to retain a fullness of energy and well-being. It will enhance your ability to listen, discern and decide upon the best form of care or service available. This ensures reliability and, in turn, creates a deep sense of safety and trust from those in their care. Essentially, care of the caregiver translates into better care for those you care for.

This workshop will be beneficial to anyone in a position of catering to the needs of others - parents, teachers, health practitioners, or for those who care for individuals with disabilities or challenges and sick pets. Join us to learn how those in your care will benefit from the ongoing care you provide for yourself.
