- The causes of caregiver stress will be explored at a workshop on Monday, July 22, in which caregivers will be empowered with practical knowledge and skills to effectively manage their daily stressors.
This event is being offered by the Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County’s Caregiver Resource Center from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.
Michelle Lorenzo, MA, LMT, and Reiki Master, will lecture on relaxation techniques in a group setting that can easily be done at home.
Through a combination of group discussion and practical exercises, the caregivers will learn what is stress, how to identify stressors, stress management tools and various methods of relaxation that would enable a caregiver to move into a more positive experience of inner-connectedness and peace while caring for a loved one.
Caregivers can use this workshop to take some time out for themselves, learn how to enhance their own sense of well-being in a supportive environment and learn valuable skills that can be shared with their loved one.
Pre-registration is required by July 17 and can be obtained by calling 845-292-6180.
This free opportunity is provided by funding from the New York State Office for the Aging Caregiver Resource Center program. Refreshments will be provided.
