Caregiver Survival Training is an interactive workshop, in which Elaine K Sanchez helps long-term care workers understand the similarities and differences between the emotional stress experienced by family caregiver and professional caregivers.
Attendees learn a three-step process to developing an attitude of “Creative Indifference” toward caregiver anger, guilt, depression and grief. They come away with strategies that help them manage the difficult emotions associated with caring for individuals who are aging, disabled or suffering with progressive and degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases.
Participants learn how to recognize and cope with compassion fatigue, how to deal with dementia-related challenging behaviors, including inappropriate sexual behavior, and they come away with a renewed awareness of the importance of caring for themselves while caring for others.
Elaine’s ability to incorporate humor and story-telling into difficult topics and illustrate coping strategies with engaging slides, make this program entertaining, as well as informative and educational.
