Caregiver Burnout: Caring for a Person Living with Dementia
Presented by: Chris Petrik, RN, BS, DCCS-CI, Director of Education, Dementia Reality Master Trainer, Elderwerks Educational Services
The diagnosis of dementia is a call-to-action, but not being prepared and unfamiliar in the role can cause havoc on your personal mental and physical health. In this program, we will talk about what causes the stress of caregiving for a person living with dementia, how to identify that you’re under considerable strain, and how it not only affects you both mentally or physically, but how it affects your caregiving skills. Learn some techniques to de-stress, and reinforce that it is OK to take care of yourself, while taking care of others!
