Caregiver Fatigue Prevention
Time & Location
About the Event
It is not uncommon for people who care for others to become fatigued and overwhelmed by their role in caring for another. It is not hard to see why, it can be very demanding and the responsibility can be seemingly endless. Parents, teachers, healthcare professionals, and caregivers to elderly family members are among some of the people who are at risk for experiencing symptoms such as irritability, frustration, loneliness, lack of interest, avoidance, worry, poor sleep, and reduced empathy associated with caregiver fatigue and burnout.
It has become popular for well intending people to suggest engaging in "self-care" practices such getting a massage, exercising, and taking a bath to address the fatigue and exhaustion that come with caring for others. While these suggestions are very important and play a role in preventing burnout, standing alone they are often not enough. They fall short of providing the much needed support in the midst of a challenging caregiving experiences, they must be done off the job, and often there is not enough time to do them as often as needed. Caregivers need ways to help them on the job so that they are at less risk of being exhausted by it, and instead can feel the positive emotions of connection and deep sense of purpose that can be experienced while caring for others.
In this workshop we will discuss the challenges of being in the caregiver role and learn skills to help support you in the moment of difficult caregiving responsibilities that go beyond self care practices so that you can foster resiliency in the face of adversity.
