Ruth goes through three critical topics for surviving but thriving in her new role. Learn how information, respite and support are key to caring for yourself. Going from two incomes to be barely having one income was a major challenge. Ruth shares how she dealt with financial hurdles to reach necessary goals for today and beyond.
You may be familiar by now with the physical, emotional and psychological stress that are the unfortunate side-effects of caring for a loved one with dementia. As if the pain of someone dear to you wasnâ€™t difficult enough, your own body and mind may begin to suffer as you use your own precious resources to care for them. Left unchecked, this constant exposure to the stress response known as fight-or-flight can compromise your health. The good news is that the practice of mindfulness meditation can actually reverse the negative impact of stress on your body, cultivate more compassion for yourself and others, and even shrink your amygdala â€“ the fear center of your brain. During this program, mindfulness trainer Heather Stang will teach you simple yet powerful tools to help reverse the negative effects of caregiver stress, so you can live fully while tending to your loved ones and clients.
