Research has shown 40-70% of adults in the role of caregiving suffer from major depression. In addition, adults in the role of caregiving are at risk of higher levels of stress and frustration and overall worsened physical health. Ultimately, these statistics point to lower levels of self-care for caregivers.
Caring For Me, Too is a virtual support group that is centered around self-care and stress reduction for the adult caregiver. During this virtual support group, caregivers will be able to virtually interact with and meet others who come from various caregiving backgrounds and experiences. From interacting with other caregivers, attendees will be able to share experiences with others and learn how current caregivers are taking care of themselves, especially during the COVID-19 crisis.
Caring For Me, Too’s ‘Virtual Open Circle’ will focus on stress reduction and self-care. Caregivers will learn about mindfulness and will participate in a virtual guided meditation. Attendees will learn how to practice mindfulness throughout the day to maintain lower stress levels, achieve personal growth, and feel increased meaning & purpose in life.
You’ll go home feeling more at peace and have the tools you need to find calm in your chaos. In addition, you’ll walk away knowing practical self-care methods that you can use while caring for your loved ones.
