    Mindfulness Training for Employee Caregivers

    Workshop Jan 7, 2020 10AM-4PM

  • Recent surveys report 40 million individuals in the US are performing care for a family member or friend without pay, adding up to 37 billion hours of care for loved ones. Most are also working to support themselves and/or family at the same time.

    Family caregivers often undergo a tremendous amount of stress while giving care to their loved ones. For many, the effects continue after the caregiving period has ended. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 40%-70% of caregivers show symptoms of depression with 25-50% meeting the diagnostic criteria for major depression.

    We've teamed up with CareWise™, an innovative solution for employee-caregivers to create a program offering a mindful approach to self-care for the caregiver and designed with elements from a number of well-respected self-care tools:

    • Mindfulness
    • Neuroscience
    • Positive Psychology
    • Conscious Communication
    • Meditation
    • Mindful Movement
