Self-Care for Caregivers

Wednesday, October 24, 2018 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Oneonta, NY
Description: Upcoming Workshop: Self-Care for Caregivers

Caring for a child or adult with special needs is rewarding, but it can take its toll on the caregiver. Join Family Resource Network for an evening learning about self-care for the caregiver. Learn techniques for managing your own mental and physical health while caring for a loved one. We will have parents and community members demonstrating:

Yoga
Meditation
Quick and easy home exercise routines
Mindfulness
Essential Oils
Journaling
…and more!

Healthy snacks will be served. Families are welcome to join in the activities or just observe. Wear comfortable clothes, and bring a yoga or exercise mat if you have one. We will have mats available for those who don’t. All attendees will receive a gift bag of “tools” to help with their self-care efforts at home.
