The holidays are stressful for many. Grief comes in different forms and at different times throughout the caregiving journey which can add overwhelming stress to the caregiver’s life. We can be proactive in choosing how we will get through difficult times. In this presentation, attendees will explore common losses affecting them and those they are caregiving for, common presenting symptoms and strategies that have been helpful for many so that they may best approach the holidays in 2022.

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.
