ApexCare was a proud vendor at the Del Oro presentation, “Finding Hope, Humor, & Heart in Caregiving” by Elaine Sanchez. Today’s workshop was extremely well-attended with over 100 family caregivers participating at the event and was held in Citrus Heights at the Community Center.
Elaine’s presentation was an inspiring and informative presentation featuring real-life stories and strategies for coping with the emotional stress of caregiving. Her presentation provided the attendees with specific strategies to deal with a number of common family caregiving challenges including the following:
1. Coping with Caregiver Anger and Guilt
2. Dealing with Caregiver Depression and Grief
3. Understanding and responding to Dementia-Related Challenging Behaviors, Including Surprising and Inappropriate Sexual Behavior
4. Developing a Plan for Self-Care
Listening to the presentation was a very direct reminder of the challenges of being a family caregiver. Family caregivers provide an invaluable service that is often underappreciated and unrecognized. Elaine’s caregiver survival tips and suggestions will undoubtedly help all family caregivers cope with the daily frustrations, challenges, and emotions of caring for a loved one.
Elaine is the author, speaker, and co-founder of caregiverhelp.com and is a recognized expert in the field of caregiving. She is also the author of the unflinchingly honest and uproariously funny book,
“Letters from Madelyn, Chronicles of a Caregiver”.
