Family Caregiver Interactive Information Series
Are you a family caregiver? This series will interest you!
Being a family caregiver can be as challenging as it is rewarding. If you are a family caregiver looking after someone with a chronic illness please join us for this series of informative conversations.
Each session will be led by members of the Montreal Institute for Palliative Care professional team. Our team has a wide range in expertise on caring with compassion, supporting family members, and managing illness.
This is an excellent forum to learn, exchange ideas, and connect with others who may have caregiving stories that resonate with your own.
These sessions are all FREE and will be conducted interactively online.
Presented by Anita Mehta, RN, PhD, CFT
What this session will cover:
Family members are increasingly caring for chronically ill people at home. This care may sometimes consist of both physical and emotional challenges. It is not surprising that as a result, family caregivers often experience distress related to their experiences. They continue to place priority on their loved one, often at a cost to their own physical and mental health. It becomes difficult for them to recognize their need for self-care and the need to respect those needs.
This interactive session will focus on recognizing when caring for yourself becomes critical and will address the challenges of caring for someone while trying to balance care for yourself.
