Overview: Whether it's something you are dealing with personally or know someone who is, caring for a loved one at the end of life can be extremely challenging. Come by and take a little time for yourself to discuss ways to give compassionate care to yourself and your loved one, for when the time comes. Tips and techniques for end of life care (communication, support, advocacy, and managing symptoms) will be provided along with a handout for you to take with you.
Please encourage caregivers and family members 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
