What to Do When a Loved One Resists Care
Sometimes loved ones refuse to accept support even when they need it. This workshop will help caregivers consider the underlying reasons for resistance to care, provide strategies to improve collaboration, and teach ways to practice self-care and set boundaries while caregiving.
How to Know When a Loved One Needs Help
Helping a loved one maintain independence is important. Knowing when a loved one needs help can be difficult, and making changes is often a nuanced process. This workshop helps caregivers recognize the signs that a loved one needs help and explores ways to provide assistance while maintaining independence.
Navigating the Emotions of Caregiving
Caregiving can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a person’s life. It can also be one of the most challenging. This workshop will explore the range of emotions experienced as a caregiver and provide techniques to navigate emotions with more grace and self-care.
Finding Your Caregiving Strengths
Although we often don’t recognize it, caregiving is a superpower. This workshop will help caregivers discover and own their strengths and leverage those strengths in the caregiving relationship. It will also help caregivers recognize areas where they may need some strategic support.
Building on Our Strengths: A Teamwork Mentality for Families
Supporting an aging parent or loved one takes teamwork. This workshop helps caregivers and their family members understand their individual strengths and talents to become a more cohesive team as they care for a loved one.
Caregivers are often good at caring for others but not as good about caring for themselves. One way to practice self-care is to be able to set boundaries. This workshop will help caregivers explore ways to set limits on the things that drain their time and energy, as well as to learn how to say “no” to things that don’t serve them.

The system of care for older adults is complex and fragmented. That complexity makes it difficult for individuals to navigate or advocate for a loved one. This workshop will provide techniques to help older adults and their caregivers be more effective in selecting the care for a loved one.
Protecting Your Loved One from Elder Fraud
