If you are responsible for the care of someone who is challenged with a life threatening or chronic condition, as a caregiver you may be struggling too. Whether caring for a family member, loved one, or patients or residents in care facilities, caregivers often suffer from anxiety, depression, sleep deprivation, overwhelm and burnout.
Dr. Lucia Capacchione, author and art therapist, will discuss simple and effective tools for bridging the gap between self-care and care of others. Her time-tested methods are being used in home-care, hospitals, memory care facilities, and cancer support groups.
Engage in a supportive and nurturing discussion of how the practice of self-nurturance is the most caring thing you can do – for yourself and others. Join us in taking time just for you. Fill your cup.
