Caregiver Fatigue and Burnout

Date: Wednesday, October 23, 2019
Time: 7:00pm-9:00pm

Speaker: Lorna Scott

While 9 out of 10 caregivers surveyed (Aginginplace.com 2019) say that even with all the burdens, caring for their loved one is worthwhile, the impact on the person who is care-giving can’t be understated. The desire to provide the best care for a loved one can lead to fatigue, helplessness and immense feelings of guilt. In this session, you’ll discover what can lead to burnout, how to recognize it, strategies and how to avoid burnout and what to do if you might have reached burnout.

Speaker Overview:

Lorna found her passion for helping others discover their own inner power and special gifts. During her personal transition and transformation following the death of her husband, she became passionate about the plight of the caregiver.
