As a caregiver, stress is a common and frequent experience. Stress affects caregivers in their abilities to cope with and implement skills to deal with the problems and dilemmas they may face. By understanding the ongoing impact that stress has on a caregiver’s life and the importance of developing adaptive strategies, participants will be better equipped to assist their loved ones.

Learn and understand the various symptoms and chronic manifestations of stress, their common sources and strategies to deal with stress during the workshop.

This is small-group discussion and the number of caregiver participants is limited. Not familiar with Zoom? Join a brief orientation session at 11:30 a.m. before the presentation begins.
