Common Caregiver Misconceptions Revealed
Join Allison in revealing and then debunking some of the commonly held misconceptions related to family caregiving, such as “I am the only one that can do this”, “if you aren’t willing to help, you don’t care”, “their needs and wants are more important than mine” and “no one else understands my situation”. We will explore how insidious these beliefs are, the ways they may be impacting your caregiving and how to gracefully extricate yourself from their grasp. This webinar will be useful for both “newbie” and “seasoned” family caregivers.

This webinar is facilitated by Allison Reeves, Registered Clinical Counsellor. It runs from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. We gratefully acknowledge the United Way of Greater Victoria and the Province of British Columbia for partial funding of this event.

Maintaining Balance in Your Life While Caregiving
It is important for family caregivers to find a way to balance the demands of caring for another person and taking care of their own physical, mental and emotional heath. It is difficult to predict when caregiving might become part of your life and when the time comes the additional responsibilities often get squeezed into an already busy life. Many caregivers take on this new role without letting go of anything else and end up exhausted and burnt out. In this webinar we will explore strategies for managing your time, identifying what drains your energy and what energizes you and how to restore balance in your life while caregiving.

This webinar is facilitated by Barb Small, Program Development Coordinator, Family Caregivers' Network. It runs from 1:00 - 2:00 PM. We gratefully acknowledge the United Way of Greater Victoria and the Province of British Columbia for partial funding of this event.

Neutralizing Your Caregiver Energy Zappers
As a family caregiver unmet and/or unacknowledged needs may become stressors, zapping your energy and influencing your feelings and attitudes. This can result in behaviours which can negatively impact the relationship with those you are caring for. This webinar for family caregivers will help you to identify those unmet or unacknowledged needs (your energy zappers) and explore their effect on both you and your relationship with the person you are providing care to. Also, Jule will offer tips and invite suggestions from participants for ways to neutralize the influence of these caregiver energy zappers.

This webinar is facilitated by Jule Briese, Educator and Personal Enrichment Workshop Facilitator. It runs from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. We gratefully acknowledge the United Way of Greater Victoria and the Province of British Columbia for partial funding of this event.

Allison has been counselling family caregivers for many years and does so with humour and compassion.
