If you are a caregiver of an aging adult or aging yourself, Aging & Amazing provides a safe and encouraging online community. One of their supportive resources is Caregiver T.L.C. trainings, which we are featuring because we believe caregivers deserve all the support they can get!
What is CAREGIVER T.L.C.?
Aging & Amazing, a virtual community devoted to celebrating family caregivers and professionals who support older adults, is offering free training called Caregiver T.L.C.:
Session 1: Strategies for Stress
The topic of this session is all about the management of stress. You’ll learn two valuable yet simple stress management tools you can use at any time.
Session 2: Dealing with the Blues
This session’s focus is on how to deal with common depressive symptoms that caregivers often experience.
Session 3: Bouncing Back
This session explores the concept of resilience in caregiving.
Session 4: Filling the Well
This session will explore the importance of self-care, focusing on 4 areas (spiritual, physical, mental, and social).
Session 5: Coping with Frustration
This session emphasizes that frustration, and at times anger, are understandable emotions, but they can get in the way of successful caregiving. Caregivers will leave with strategies they can practice at home when frustration or anger becomes overwhelming.
Session 6: All By Myself
The focus of this session is on the loneliness and social isolation that are so common during this pandemic, along with recommended strategies for reducing them.
