Mindful Caregiver Education teaches contemplative practices and skill-based approaches for successfully navigating the challenging caregiving environment. Our approach has demonstrated success for improving care through increased well-being for caregiver and the care recipient.
Exploring such topics as communication, compassion, and loss, our education incorporates meditation, writing exercises, experiential activities and thought-provoking discussion. Every course is designed to cultivate awareness, compassion and resilience in everyday efforts.
Our methods provide an internal support structure for caregivers. Classes are a great opportunity to develop a personal practice that improves interactions not only with those in our care, but also with others in our lives. Participants have shared that Mindful Caregiver Education courses have improved relations with their children, spouses, co-workers and employees.
Learning to improve our caregiving abilities is an opportunity to become better human beings as a whole. This growth process enhances all our relationships, including with our own selves.
Participants can expect to enjoy restful days of self-reflection and connection with like-minded people in shared situations.
