Join these 30-minute sessions and access the many subsequent tools that will be made available to explore various challenges of the caregiver experience during this crisis. The purpose of the initial offering will be to reflect and connect as peers in caregiving.
You are invited to recharge and take care of yourself so you can effectively help others…You will be inspired and given resources to incorporate self-care practices during the busy-ness of the extended crisis.
A Caretakers Supply Kit will accompany you on your journey through this and other crises. May you find it of value to you.
This program is tailored for essential workers in critical roles amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. We are caregivers, managers, collaborators, and family members on the front lines doing our best to shine a light for others in their time of need. During our time together, we will honor the caregiver experience and offer a package with supportive, restorative self-care supplies that can be accessed any time and integrated into the journey ahead.
Together, we will:
A. Speak to some of the unique challenges of practitioners and their families who are on the frontline.
B. Acknowledge our activated parts: caregiver, collaborate, manager, and other parts that may be echoing from afar.
C. Bolster and enrich our self-care practices.
