Caregiver: Balance, Self-Compassion, and Grace
Time & Location
About the Event
Caregiving for others requires a great deal of managing, planning, providing care, coordination, and patience. Handling all of this for someone else while also tending to one’s own needs can be difficult to navigate. As a caregiver, it is vital that you learn to grant yourself permission to be imperfect, and to allow yourself the time to balance your needs with your loved ones.
This workshop will offer an opportunity to engage and dialogue with other individuals living similar experiences. We will address the difficulty that can arise from the juggling act of meeting your needs while providing quality care. The impact of limited boundaries and losing oneself will be discussed. Ways to support your loved one without losing sight of your own needs will be shared. Q&A throughout.
Saturday, May 8th, 2021 from 3pm - 5pm
Seminars are scheduled to take place on Zoom. Participants will be emailed a Zoom link before the workshop.
