Emotional Rescue for Caregivers: How to handle the challenges and take care of yourself

March 25 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This free half day workshop is provided by local nonprofit, MemoryCare, for online attendance only through Zoom. Visit their website for more information and to register. Email education@memorycare.org or call 828-771-2219 with questions.

Tag—You’re it! You’ve become an unexpected caregiver, a job that requires you to take care of someone who may not remember you, let alone like you. You need to show up every day, with a renewed sense of energy and creativity to handle both surprises and indifference from your loved one. When is there time to take care of your needs? Let me teach you how to carve out time for necessary self-care, set up clear boundaries to avoid family drama, and use creative tools in connecting with loved ones. It doesn’t matter if you are currently in the midst of giving care or just beginning, whether you have chosen this role or it fell into your lap, learn how to be a S.A.N.E. caregiver —Supported, Appreciated, Not Guilty, and Energized.

The Virtual Workshop will be divided into three sections:

Emotional baggage—What is it? Why do we hold onto it? How can we let it go?
Getting to S.A.N.E.—How can you feel Supported, Appreciated, Not Guilty, and Energized during your caregiving journey and when you are no longer a caregiver?
Creative Outlets—Learning how to creatively connect makes a world of difference in how you give care.
