2019 Summer Phone Sessions
|In partnership with Seniors’ Centre Without Walls, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be running Phone Support Groups on the last Thursday of July & August. Caregivers of all ages across Alberta are welcome to participate, just call 780-395-2626 to register!
July’s topic is Self-Care Through the Summer:
We often hear about self-care, or we are told to “take care of ourselves” – but what does this actually mean? Anything you (the caregiver) do to take care of yourself – something just for YOU. It is NOT the things you have to do (like work, studying, errands, housework, caregiving). As caregivers we often put ourselves last. We see self-care as selfish and say things like “there’s no time, I’m too busy.” But if you don’t take the time to care for yourself you will be the next patient – and then what? Good self-care includes care of yourself:
It can be done alone or with the help of professionals, groups, instructors, family, counselors, or even with books, classes, and the internet. We all need balance in our lives. Let’s talk about how to achieve that in your caregiving role.
Caregiver Information Sessions are one of our most popular programs. Information Sessions provide an opportunity to explore caregiver topics, connect with other caregivers and get to know Caregivers Alberta.
Sessions are offered every other Thursday in the afternoon (1:30-3:00 pm) and evening (6:00-7:30 pm) unless noted otherwise. Sessions are located at the Caregivers Alberta office, located at 12122 68 Street NW, Edmonton. The room opens 15 minutes prior to session time.
Attend whichever sessions interest you. Refreshments will be provided. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required and closes the day prior to session. The sessions may be cancelled due to inclement weather or low registration (minimum 5); we will do our best to contact you in advance.
