Caregiver Self-Care Webinar: Mindfulness and Stress Management
Earlier in 2019 Right at Home Pearl City's Operation Manager recorded a Caregiver Self-Care Webinar as part of HGPS's (Hawaii Pacific Gerontological Society) free monthly webinar series.
Seventy percent of caregivers over the age of 70 pass away before the person their caring for. Caregiver Stress is a key factor in Caregiver Syndrome. That end of life percentage drops to forty percent for caregivers under the age of 70. Caring for those who once cared for us is one of life's greatest honors. Taking care of one's-self is often times missed in this busy world of caring for another. Yet it's the most important part of being an effective Caregiver. This Self-Care Webinar offers some basic tools we all can benefit from, in hopes of helping Caregivers to replenish themselves physically, mentally & spiritually through healthy self-care practices. Below are three things you will learn in this informative webinar.
- Facts about Kupuna Care Current Trends & Needs
- Evidenced Based Best Practiced Self-Care Techniques
- Hawaii Kupuna (Seniors) Resources for support, assistance & involvement
