Caring for the Caregiver Through Honest Conversation & Acceptance

  • Hart Senior Center - Cypress Room 915 27th Street Sacramento, CA, 95816 United States (map)

Caring for a loved one by helping them bathe, groom, eat and remember is not something most of us anticipated. For many of us, there is a feeling of living for two people, and we can find ourselves short-tempered or resentful and then feel guilty and ashamed. In the midst of caring for others, it is easy to lose sight of how our lives are affected by daily exposure to those in need. The emotional, spiritual and physical repercussions of caring for others are real. We will explore ways to deal with guilt and self-criticism, as well as find ways to lighten up, laugh and let go. Through honest dialogue, we will explore love, loss, surrender, acceptance and joy. If you are feeling spiritually or emotionally depleted in your current caregiving experience, this session may help you get back in touch with your emotions and find acceptance in the feelings you are experiencing.

Julie Interrante, MA will lead participants through an extraordinary emotional experience unlike any other "Caring for the Caregiver" workshop you have previously attended.

SPACE IS LIMITED. Please RSVP for this FREE workshop by contacting Chantell Albers, at calbers@cityofsacramento.org or 916-808-6475. Free respite is available. Please express your need when registering.
