WORKSHOP: Take Care of The Caregiver

    A joint study by Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania published in the New England Journal of Medicine (2006) provides insight into this phenomenon. The results of the study suggest that the spouses of seriously ill patients are significantly more likely to develop life threatening illnesses themselves. This higher risk of death and serious illness is related to factors such as stress, emotional strain, lack of daily practical help, and financial challenges.

Caregivers are often overlooked by even the most well meaning family, friends, and even professionals. Often, we are all so focused on the person with the illness that the caregiver can become an afterthought. This workshop is designed to give practically focused information for professionals and individuals who want to learn the vital art of caring for caregivers.
