The Balancing Act: Candid Conversations for the Caregiver
Lutheran Medical Center
Wheat Ridge, CO
Caregiving is becoming the “new normal” for many Americans with over 39 million people providing care for an adult 18 years or older with a disability or illness. But who is taking care of the caregiver?
Join us for our Candid Conversations Lecture Series as we focus on you – the caregiver. With conversations ranging from self-care, compassion fatigue and more – we’ll tackle some difficult topics that may help you in your caregiving journey. All caregivers who attend will receiving a Caregiving Toolkit filled with additional information on support organizations, respite, and more.
