Virtual Caregiver Conference:

How Full is Your Cup?

Friday, May 14 2021, 9:00 - 2:30

Many caregivers selflessly prioritize the needs of others over their own to the point of burnout. The responsibilities of caregiving take a toll on our minds and bodies, and we all know you can't pour from an empty cup. Tune in for a series of one-hour virtual workshops dedicated to filling your cup when you're running on empty. 

For questions, call 904-391-6603 or email info@caregivercoalition.org

Workshop Schedule:

9:00

Florida Blue, Self-Care 911 COVID-19 Resilience Toolkit

Dealing with the stress of the Coronavirus pandemic is taking a toll on our health. Between working from home, home-schooling the kids, taking care of the home and our loved ones, we are burning the candle at both ends. Perhaps there is an opportunity to hit the pause button, catch our breath, regroup and learn some simple ways to decompress, be present and shift our mindset towards calm resilience.

10:30

Margaret Johnston, Going Down in Flames is Not Healthy: How to Succeed Without Burning Out

Learning how to establish boundaries for yourself, find strength in asking for help, and how practicing self-compassion can protect you against the stress and anxiety of caregiving. 

 

12:00

Hope McMath, Honoring Your Authentic Self Through Self-Expression

Research has shown that taking time for creative exploration is effective at reducing anxiety and stress levels. When we give ourselves permission to be creative without guilt or fear of judgement, we honor who we are and our unique journey as a caregiver. This session is interactive and will include creative exercises. All you will need is a pencil, paper, and an open mind. 

 

1:30

Loretta Veney, Building Joyful Caregiver Experiences Using Humility, Hope and Humor!

We build a variety of things throughout our lives and careers, but few of us actually think about Building Joyful Caregiver Experiences for those we care for. Using the concepts of humility, hope and humor Loretta will help participants focus on their values and joyful practices to  build outstanding caregiver experiences for their loved ones or residents.
