Caregiver Stress & Burnout: How to regain a sense of balance in your life: Tues. March 19, 12-1 PM

Long-term caregiving can be a fulfilling experience, but it can also be challenging and emotionally taxing. If left unmanaged, the stress of caregiving can lead to burnout, which can affect your physical and mental health, relationships, and overall well-being. This can also impact the person you're caring for, making it crucial to prioritize your own self-care. This session will cover the common and uncommon signs of caregiver stress and burnout, along with tips to lighten the load, avoid burnout, and find balance in your life.
