Save the Date! Make plans to attend the 2017 annual Symposium on Thursday, September 28 and Friday, September 29!
Woven Together: Care-Giving and Care-Receiving
The Crossroads of Caring for Another and Caring for Self
Living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition requires a wide circle of carers. It is not enough to empower and support a child with such a condition, siblings, parents, and even the family. Optimizing care and hope also requires attention to volunteer and professionals that are part of the circles of care. If any “care-giver” is compromised in their well-being or ability to provide their best, the care of a person living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition can be adversely affected.
In this symposium, perspectives and tools that support, promote, and extend resiliency and hardiness for all care-givers will be presented, demonstrated, discussed and expanded. Further, the intersections of care-providers will be highlighted. Collaboration is never easy. Individual, family, and team-care will be addressed separately but as inextricably intertwined. If done well, all can benefit.
