North Florida/South Georgia Caregivers!

There are upcoming caregiver classes that are being held in Tallahassee if you are interested.  The caregiver office indicated you DO NOT have to be a registered caregiver to attend so please contact Bina and let her know you would like to attend!  I will be there for both classes if anyone has questions or needs anything that I can help with, I am happy to help.

Here is the flyer if you would like to download it =>  Tallahassee 2015 class

The details are as follows:

Course 1: Managing Stress

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

9:00am – 12:00pm

Caregivers will learn a five step approach to problem solving and utilize this approach to address a current problem. Principles of effective communication and techniques such as “I” Messages and Empathic Listening will be presented and practiced in class.

Course 2: Problem Solving & Effective Communication

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

1:00pm – 4:00pm

Caregivers will identify both internal and external sources of stress in their lives and how negative self-talk and unrealistic expectations can contribute to stress. Stress management techniques such as massage, deep breathing, meditation and journaling will be presented. Caregivers will practice these techniques and develop a personal action plan for stress management.

    • I don’t know if she will be putting them on line or had even thought about the Skype possibility but I would encourage you to reach out to her and suggest that. The more interest in those types of things, the more likely that there will be additional options and classes in the future. I will pick up all the materials and take notes for a blog post. My thought was to scan them together if possible for one document that I can upload for sharing. I hope there will be someone that will help!
