Webinar: Taking Care of Yourself While You Care for Others

Caring for yourself is one of the most important things you can do as a caregiver. But often, caregivers prioritize the needs of others over their own. In this webinar, Laura Jackson, a registered nurse and healthcare leader will identify ways to care for yourself.

You will learn:

The art and science of self-compassion and how to cultivate it in your life
Tips for making and developing your own routine to practice self-compassion and mindfulness
How to foster boundaries as a caregiver without guilt, anger, and resentment
