Caregiving Survival  

2 hrs
Caregiving survival offers an enthusiastic delivery of the steps needed to survive the stress of caregiving.  Since caregivers share a common emotional thread it often helps others to see that they are not alone and that there are things we can do to keep ourselves mentally healthy.  Caregiving survival is based on the book, Personal Positioning for the Caregiver. Caregiving survival is designed with the family caregiver in mind and will encourage both positive thoughts and behaviors.


Caregiving Survival PLUS Caring for the Elderly  

Length:  4 hrs

In this 4 hour course Jill Gafner Livingston will combine her Caregiving Survival seminar with instruction in Elderly Care, focusing on aging patients with dementia. “Caregivers are at great health risk due to the amount of mental stress they carry with them at all times”.  Knowing how to manage the stress of caregiving, and in particular, caregiving for a person with dementia, reduces the risks.  After caregiving survival, the seminar will evolve into caring for the elderly, whether it is a patient or a loved one, the content will review ways to manage behaviors associated with dementia and the aging process.  Ultimately, the participant will be given tools to assist them in their role as a caregiver.  No Prerequisites required.  Participants will receive a handbook containing the presentation.
