On October 21st, Avenidas held a conference for caregivers. The theme was "The Road to Resilience: Helping Families Thrive." Care Indeed was one of the main sponsors and had a booth (pictured above with Renata Spangler, CGCM).
At this conference, caregivers got to choose different workshops to attend, as well as listen to Keynote speakers, Dr. Fred Luskin and Roy Remer. They learned how to let go of hurt, helplessness and anger while increasing confidence, hope and happiness. Many health professionals also go to learn how to take a mindful-based approach in supporting caregivers, where Remer discussed three key points: the relationship between mindfulness, resilience, and well-being, how to apply those as a beneficial intervention for caregivers, and methodology used in Mindful Caregiver Education. During downtime, they were able to socialize and network with sponsors.
At Care Indeed, we believe that when our caregivers, our clients and our clients’ family members are facing challenges, information and education are absolutely vital. That is why our Care Blog is focused on providing the knowledge needed to understand the ins and outs of common diseases, care techniques and even training opportunities.
We want to be able to support those who need help with day-to-day tasks with interesting tidbits and advice that help to provide peace of mind, know-how and an entertaining read. As you read through each one of our blogs, know that the support you need is just a click away. Whether an individual just wants a friendly face to catch up with over a cup of tea, or they need some more support due to a health diagnosis, our professionals are available 24/7.
