The holidays are often a stressful time for caregivers. Running around, decorating, shopping, holiday get-togethers, etc. all end up taking an enormous toll on our time and energy. In this podcast, we discuss how the holidays can affect caregivers and what they can do to help themselves reduce holiday stress. The goal of the podcast is to give people “food for thought” about the things that we do during the holidays which are done out of enjoyment, obligation or duty. When we look honestly at our (numerous) holiday tasks, are we doing things because we genuinely enjoy doing them, or are we dragging ourselves along out of obligation or a sense of duty?

We empower family caregivers through education and respite. Learning more about topics related to caregiving is a great way improve your skills or increase your own personal knowledge.
Have you tried calling in to listen to our telephone “Caregivers Are Learning More” education series? It is an excellent opportunity for family caregivers who want to listen and participate in one of our educational series from the comfort of their own home or working caregivers who cannot attend events during the daytime. If you can’t call in and listen live to our telephone workshop, you can also access the recordings below for tele-workshops on different topics we’ve covered throughout the year
