Do you find that you feel guilty about not doing enough as a caregiver? Do you feel angry or resentful towards family or friends for not assisting you more in your caregiving responsibilities? Do you feel irritable or strained because of the stresses of caregiving? Caregivers often have self-imposed expectations pressuring them to feel they should be able to handle every situation they encounter with little or no support or assistance from others. It is easy to become so immersed in caring for a loved one that you may neglect your own physical, mental and emotional health. Join the Area Agency on Aging for an interactive program that will cover the importance of taking a pause and taking care of your own health through self-care.

This is a small-group discussion and the number of caregiver participants is limited. Not familiar with Zoom? Join a brief orientation session at 9:30 a.m. before the presentation begins.
