November 14th Session- 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A
Presented by: Alice Williams, M.S., LBSW
Topic: Holidays and Self-Care
Overview: Having a family member or loved one who is ill or needs extra help, can cause additional stress during the holidays. Caregivers, families, and healthcare workers are encouraged to join us for a discussion on practical tips for alleviating some of these stressors. A Holiday Stress Assessment will be provided and there will be an emphasis on adjusting expectations to keep the holiday season a time of togetherness and joy.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 409-266-7542.
