Focusing on the Forgotten...Me!
Caregivers have very demanding lives, with pressures and responsibilities seeming to come from every direction. This audio presentation focuses on recognizing these challenges and confirms just how easy it is to neglect one’s own needs when caring for another. Caregivers will learn strategies to identify signs of stress in themselves. Strategies are introduced to help Caregivers become more attuned to personal needs and begin to identify daily opportunities to connect with the people/places/experiences that restore balance and vitality.
Hear the strategies, or read them.
