Oct. 3, 2020:Reducing Stress / Dealing with Parents and Resistance

Speakers: Dr. Barry Jacobs and Alex Morris

Reducing Stress: Family caregiving can be joyful but is almost always still stressful. In this interactive workshop, we'll discuss ways that caregivers can change their reactions to caregiving's challenges if they can't change caregiving's arduous circumstances. We'll practice breathing exercises, visualization, the 5 Senses and other forms of mindfulness that caregivers can easily learn and incorporate into their daily routines to better manage stress.

Dealing with Parents and Resistance: Are you worried about how your aging parents are doing now that one or both of them have physical challenges or chronic illnesses? They say they are doing fine and that you shouldn’t worry. But you do worry. Come and learn techniques in overcoming resistance to accepting help
