Course Description
Caring for a family member is an exhausting, overwhelming experience. We often equate a caregiving experience with compassion fatigue.

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!”

      Hi Suzanne–It’s great to connect! we’d love to have you join us. We’re adding a new Master Class in January on Resilience. We’ll share details in December. I’ll also keep in mind the time difference to make it easier for you to join. We have participants from New Zealand and we’ve successfully navigated the time difference to make it convenient for them.
