Empathy: A Key Skill for Family Caregivers
Empathy plays an important role in caregiving, especially during stressful times when you can often feel frustrated and resentful. The person you are caring for may seem to be “uncooperative” or “too demanding”. Empathy is the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes to understand and appreciate more fully their behaviors, thoughts, and feelings. In this webinar we will explore how the use of empathy while caregiving can help reduce the irritation, resentment and confusion that you may be feeling toward your care recipient and other family members.

This webinar is facilitated by Barb Small, Program Development Coordinator, Family Caregivers' Network Society. It runs from 7:00 - 8:00 PM. We gratefully acknowledge the United Way of Greater Victoria and the Province of British Columbia for partial funding of this event

Cultivating Balance: Self-Nurturing For Family Caregivers
As a family caregiver, if you feel you are burning out, this webinar could be the catalyst for giving yourself permission to invest in some self-nurturing. Together we will explore the seeds of balance that are pathways to well-being. We will look at what happens when we are out of balance, try to identify those areas that need nurturing and look at how we might do this so we can cultivate our own garden of balance and well-being. Being more in balance will help you caregive more effectively for a longer period of time and will benefit both yourself and the person you are caring for.

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.

Though you may have heard the words “get over it” or “move on” from others, here you will have the opportunity to be heard and to learn techniques to live better as a family caregiver without denying your experience of loss.
