Supporting the Caregiver Through Stress Management Strategies

Date: Tuesday, January 28, 2020
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CT
LeadingAge NE members: $70
Non-members: $105

Health care team members have often referred to the family caregiver as “the second patient.” This course reviews the significant burden of stress facing the caregiver, both family and organization, and its correlation to the resident receiving care by the health care team. Strategies will be shared to support the caregiver, to include a range from verbal feedback to recommendations for managing the stress so that they can better care for their own physical, mental and emotional health.

By the completion of the presentation, attendees will:

  • Cite the physical effects which may often result from the stress of caregiving.
  • Identify signs and symptoms of the unmanaged stress points.
  • Recognize potential events that trigger increased disturbances.
  • List strategies to support caregivers, for improved care for themselves as well as for their family member.
