Being a full time, part time, or some time caregiver can be overwhelming. Often caregiver’s feel isolated and can experience a range of conflicting emotions from frustration, to joy, to sadness and even anger.
Research has found that caregiver’s also experience a greater amount of prolonged stress that often results in physical and mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and substance abuse disorders.
Groups focus on topics such as: Understanding burnout and compassion fatigue, learning the importance of self care, maintaining your own sense of individuality and identity, and managing your own mental health care and resources.
Other goals include:
Provide a safe space to process difficult thoughts and feelings.
Reduce stress and increase positive coping skills.
Facilitate the sharing of resources, ideas, techniques among other caregivers.
