The Faculty/Staff Assistance Program is pleased to offer a workshop series for people caring for an aging family member. Join us for one or all of the sessions to learn new ideas for healthful caregiving, taking care of yourself, and connecting with the help you need to be successful in this important and challenging role.
The Caring for You, Caring for Me workshop will address balancing self-care with caregiving tasks, talking about loss and change, understanding the complicated emotions of all parties involved, and communicating healthfully.
In Connecting with Help we will explore and share information about the what, how, and who related to building the supports for you and your loved one to successfully transition to a caregiving relationship.
The session on Rethinking Routines and Traditions will focus on creating an optimal new normal by planning ways to celebrate connections and time together, restructure holidays and family events, and focus on the highest priorities in your life.
