The Power of Knowing

Thriving Under Pressure Part One
How to Manage Stress as a Caregiver

Thursday, May 9 | Noon to 1 p.m.

Understanding comes from knowing. Caregiving can be quite challenging. “Thriving Under Pressure” is a
three-part webinar series that will explore the many facets of caregiving. Part one on May 9 will discuss ways
caregivers can recognize and manage the stress this important role can bring, empowering the caregiver to
be their best for those they are providing care for.

Learning Objectives

• Learn how to be more aware of your feelings and attitudes in the caregiver role.
• Learn about identifying what is in your control as a caregiver and what is not.
• Learn how “responding” instead of “reacting” can help reduce the stress of caregiving.
