The Caregiver Workshop Series 2020 is back. The new series brings lawyers, health care professionals, and fitness instructors to discuss various topics that will help caregivers overcome caregiving’s daily challenges. For two months, all caregiving faces are welcome to be part of the live streaming interactive workshops that already reached over 80 people on its last edition held a couple of months ago.
On October 1, 2020, Kimberly Dilmohamed – Caregiver Education Coordinator from the Alzheimer Society of Toronto discusses “Finding Humor and Joy in Dementia Caregiving”; What step you can take to ease caregiver stress and how we as a community can build a Dementia-friendly Toronto.
The Caregiver Workshop has been held for more than ten years with the leadership of Stacy Hilliman (Client Service Coordinator of the North York Seniors Centre). “This time, we will talk about financial supports, humour and joy in dementia caregiving, stress, and long-distance caregiving, just to name a few.”
According to Stacy, the presentations’ schedule was built based on discussions she had within her caregivers’ group. “We constantly apply surveys, and some topics that came up were considered.” She enhances that the workshops intend to provide awareness, essential insights and techniques to improve the ability to be a better caregiver. “Besides, it will be a place where attendants can socialize, meet new friends and connect with people that can support them”.
The Caregiver Workshop Series is free and open to the community, but it requires registration. For additional information, please call 416 733.4111 ext. 310. Spots are limited. REGISTER HERE. for all workshops.
