Respite: Getting the Break You Deserve, Webinar

May 8, 2013 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Facilitated by: Maureen Grant, Community Social Worker, Vancouver Island Health Authority

Are you getting tired, perhaps exhausted, from looking after your family member or friend? Does it seem like years since you’ve had a break? When you do manage to find time for yourself, do you feel guilty about it? What do you do when your family member refuses to go into a respite facility or to an adult day program to give you a break?

This webinar explores the benefits of respite, how to overcome some of the barriers and challenges that prevent family caregivers from getting respite, provides information on community resources and explores some of the emotional issues that can arise around the use of respite such as guilt and letting go.
