Caregiving Over the Holidays

To quote AARP, "For some family caregivers, the holidays can be a joyful time when spirits are lighter. It feels good to care for loved ones and enjoy time together, celebrating with family traditions. But for many the holidays also bring added stress – an already busy caregiver finds there’s even more to do during the holidays. Something’s gotta give!" During our virtual support call, we will discuss some ideas and share tips with one another to help make it through the holiday season with more joy and less stress.



Support calls are held virtually.
After registering for a support call, a Zoom link and phone number
will be provided so that you can join virtually or by phone.

National Family Caregivers Month

Finding the Rewards and Unexpected Joys of Caregiving. This topic brings to light the many good things caregivers do and how we, as informal (family, non-paid) and formal (professional) caregivers, are in this journey together with our collaborative and cooperative relationships. Please join us to share your observations about what it means to you to be a caregiver and unexpected moments of joy you may have experienced.

Caregiver Self-Care and Using Humor as a Survival Tool

Caregiving can be challenging and, combined with caregivers often putting others ahead of themselves, burnout has the potential for being a real concern. Sometimes finding the humor in a situation and laughing out loud with your loved one is the best choice for that moment. Let's talk about ways we can build our physical and emotional resilience and use humor for both your and the care recipient’s well-being.
