Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

This class is co-sponsored by Stanford WorkLife Office.

While caring for an aging family member can be rewarding, it can also have a significant impact on the health and well-being of the caregiver. Navigating demands on time, emotional energy, and attention can be overwhelming, so developing coping and respite strategies are critical to the overall health of the family as well as the family caregiver.

This free online workshop will focus on self-care strategies as both a daily practice and a long-term proactive planning challenge. The goal: seize your day, your time, your energy for yourself.

This workshop is part of the Aging Wisely class series, providing a compassionate environment to explore your questions and concerns and help you gain a holistic perspective on how to approach long-term care planning for yourself or a loved one. Through presentations and group discussions, you will learn strategies and tools to help you assess your specific long-term care needs and explore solutions to common questions related to care planning.

Whether you are a caregiver to others or interested in your own future care, you will have the opportunity to develop a customized long-term care roadmap supporting you to successfully plan for care, with the input, advice and support of an expert in gerontology.

This class will be recorded and a one-week link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants. Attend the live session or listen to the recording within one week to receive incentive points.
