The Women’s Empowerment Through Cape Area Networking (WE CAN) is holding a Caregiver’s Workshop on February 11th, 2021 via Zoom at 10am.

Who is helping you as you help a family member manage a health condition? Juggling everything was hard before the pandemic, but it’s harder than ever now. This virtual session will focus on practical ways for you to manage the challenges you’re facing and the emotions you’re experiencing as you care for a family member or friend.

You must register to attend this workshop:

 

In this workshop, you will learn:

    • The stages of caregiving and how that knowledge can reduce anxiety and stress
    • Common caregiving pitfalls and ways to avoid/overcome them
    • Simple stress reduction techniques to use at home in just minutes; and access to tools and free resources specifically for the family caregiving journey.

 

WE CAN has been empowering Cape Cod women since 2001 with unique services that inspire hope and bring increased opportunity, self-sufficiency, and stability.
