This workshop will be facilitated by
Being a caregiver for a loved one can be a very rewarding personal experience. On the other hand, exhaustion, worry, inadequate resources, and continuous care demands are enormously stressful. Only when we first help ourselves can we effectively help others. Caring for yourself is one of the most important, and one of the most often forgotten, things you can do as a caregiver. This “time out” for the caregiver will offer a brief respite — time of prayer, reflection, relaxation, and an opportunity to get in touch with one’s own soul — for those who care for others.
NOTE: Because Franciscan Village will serve complimentary dinner as part of our time together, registration is required for this event.
