COMPASS for the Caregiver (NE)
March 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 31, 2020
Caregiving can be a stressful, isolating, and overwhelming experience. Our award-winning COMPASS for the Caregiver program helps caregivers balance their own well-being with the challenges of caregiving and is facilitated by someone who understands those challenges.
COMPASS for the Caregiver is a 4-week course, before registering please ensure that you can attend all 4 sessions listed below.
Tuesday, March 10th (6:30pm-8:30pm)
– Module 1: Caregiver Characteristics – Recognize your strengths, needs, and challenges as a caregiver and take pride in your role. You’ll examine emotions and feelings in this module and help put challenging thoughts into perspective.
Tuesday, March 17th (6:30pm-8:30pm)
– Module 2: Managing Stress – Learn how stress can lead to burnout and what you can do to prevent or recover from burnout. We’ll explore grief and loss and how to foster hope and seek balance in caregiving.
Tuesday, March 24th (6:30pm-8:30pm)
– Module 3: Balancing Relationships – Improve your communication skills to identify what you need, ask for help, and share the care. The hardest lesson as a caregiver is to regain your identity as a whole person by taking care of yourself first.
Tuesday, March 31st (6:30pm-8:30pm)
– Module 4: Navigating the System – Increase your confidence in accessing services, reflect on your caregiving journey, and plan for the future to avoid the stress associated with uncertainty.
The COMPASS for the Caregiver workshop has a $300 value. Thanks to sponsorship from Caregivers Alberta this course is being offered for a $45.00 manual and registration fee. Please note this is a 4-week commitment.
