Finding Moments of ​Respite - Live Webinars

During these unprecedented times, caregivers are increasingly stressed with added daily responsibilities of care while not having access to typical supports. This workshop will explore the health risks associated with stress and anxiety and identify and address the new barriers and struggles that caregivers are facing. 

Presenters will work with caregivers to identify strategies for addressing these new challenges, provide suggestions and activities for self-care and will help caregivers find creative ways to find moments of respite for themselves while they are restricted to the home.

This workshop is targeted specifically to address caregiver needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The session will run for about 45 minutes followed by a 15 minute live Q&A. All parents, guardians, caregivers and support workers are welcome to participate.

**This session is best suited for those who have access to a web browser**

NOTE: Participants will receive a link to join the event, the day before the session, by email.
