This in-person workshop is for family caregivers and friends of people living with dementia. The emotional side of caregiving is one of the most difficults parts of the dementia journey. Over the course of this workshop, we will be exploring some of the more “difficult” feelings around caregiving, including resentment, anger, frustration, guilt, and shame. Our hope is to learn what these feelings have to teach us about our own needs, build tolerance and resilience, and expand our repertoire of skills for coping. 

 
Learning Goals:
-Recognize that feelings of resentment, anger, frustration, guilt, and shame are a normal yet challenging aspect of caring for someone living with dementia.
-Identify the causes of resentment, anger and guilt, as well as the difference between healthy and unhealthy guilt.
-Explore coping strategies to reframe feelings of guilt and anger and build resilience.
-Develop an understanding of how to connect with supportive services in your community.
 
This is an in-person workshop.
