***Families, caregivers, patients, staff and students are welcome to attend these sessions***
December 12th Session- 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A
Presented by: Rebecca Castro, LCSW
Overview: Providing care for a loved one can cause extensive stress and keeps us from caring for ourselves. During this session, we will provide relaxation techniques and tips to help caregivers and families relieve stress and reconnect with themselves.
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.
