What You Get:
- A one-hour workshop you can watch on demand or via the live training that happens in October.
We often hear that family caregivers refuse help during their caregiving experience. In this class, we explore the challenges family caregivers face which can impact their ability to accept help. Family caregivers build a fragile house of cards during their caregiving experience. Their house of cards gives them stability, routine and consistency. Their focus is to keep the house standing. Changes, including the good ones like adding help, threaten that delicate house of cards. In this class, we’ll talk about ways you can support family caregivers so they can receive help and support without jeopardizing their house of cards.
The program objectives are:
- Learn about a family caregiver’s house of cards and what creates that house of cards.
- Understand the threats to the family caregiver’s house of cards and how those threats make accepting help a challenge.
- Gain strategies to use in conversations with family caregivers so you can help them accept help and support.
