Course Description
Caring for a family member is an exhausting, overwhelming experience. We often equate a caregiving experience with compassion fatigue. Certainly, family caregivers get tired of feeling compassion for themselves and their carees. They also experience fatigue as it relates to coping, supporting, deciding and adjusting. During this live one-hour presentation and discussion, you’ll identify which fatigue family caregivers may be experiencing and learn how you can help them feel better.

“GREAT presentation!!,” says an attendee about this program. “That was very interesting and I learned a ton!”
