Start Date: 7/14/2021Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 7/14/2021End Time: 1:00 PM
Event Description
Few people are prepared for the responsibilities and tasks involved in caring for the elderly, and many do not have a choice. The primary necessity of being a good caregiver is learning to take care of yourself. This workshop outlines strategies for caring for the caregiver. It will help participants understand the types of caregiver stress, review and prepare a checklist for the care-receiver and caregiver, and learn tips and coping strategies for the caregiver. The workshop reviews the grieving process, as well as the Caregiver’s Bill of Rights.

This workshop is presented by Health Advocate.

This talk is part of our Dragon Dialogue Series, a new series of wellbeing workshops for Drexel employees.

2020 was an unprecedented year. We all faced many challenges, obstacles, isolation, and loss. In doing so, we also learned how essential community and social connection can be in weathering life’s storms.

In response to these tumultuous times, Drexel is offering its employees The Dragon Dialogue Series. This new series will feature curated conversations and workshops throughout 2021.

The Dragon Dialogue Series will cover a broad range of topics related to mental health and emotional wellbeing.

These events will offer Drexel employees opportunities for conversation and guided exercises to enhance their wellbeing in this brand-new year.

Together is better.
