"Time-Out" Session for Caregivers and Families- "How to Access Community Resources"

***Patients and staff are also welcome to attend this session***

August 15th Session- 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A

Presenter: Sarah Linde, LMSW and Angie Gomez, LMSW

Topic: "How to Access Community Resources”

Overview: As we move through our lives, different challenges and needs tend to arise.  Sometimes we can handle these challenges with our own resources and sometimes community resources are helpful.  Come by and learn about identifying and accessing community resources that might benefit you and your family.

Please encourage caregivers, family members and patients to attend! 

"Time-Out “is a weekly educational/support session for caregivers and family members of UTMB patients, to support them in their adjustment and maintenance of their caregiving role.  These sessions will not be tied to a specific diagnosis- all caregivers and family members are welcome.  The hope is that these sessions will provide a chance for them to have “time out” to relieve some stress, have a little fun, build on care giving skills, decrease burnout and affirm that they are not alone in the role of caregiving.

These sessions are facilitated by UTMB students and staff and will occur every Wednesday at 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A.  Sessions will last around 30 minutes and will address topics that falls into the following categories: Relaxation, Self-Care, Discharge Planning and Medical Topics.  

If you have questions or are interested in facilitating a session, please contact Savannah Parks at sjparks@utmb.edu or 409-266-7542.
