Event description
Caregivers Alberta believes that caregivers need care too.

About this event

Caregiving can be a stressful, isolating and overwhelming experience. And, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many caregivers are experiencing added levels of stress and anxiety.

Our award-winning COMPASS for the Caregiver program helps caregivers balance their own well-being with the challenges of caregiving and is facilitated by someone who understands those challenges.

This COMPASS for the Caregiver workshop is a multi-session, online course. Before registering, please ensure that you can virtually attend all four weekly sessions listed below.

Friday, Nov. 5 (8:30 to 10:30 a.m.)

  • Being a Caregiver: Caregiving can be stressful, isolating, and have a negative impact on your physical and mental health. Understand your role as a caregiver and assess your strengths, challenges and overall sense of self.

Friday, Nov. 12 (8:30 to 10:30 a.m.)

  • Managing Your Stress: Learn how stress can lead to burnout and what you can do to prevent or recover from burnout. We’ll explore how to shift our mindset and seek balance in caregiving.

Friday, Nov. 19 (8:30 to 10:30 a.m.)

  • Balancing Relationships: Improve your communication skills to identify what you need, ask for help, and share the care. The hardest lesson as a caregiver is to regain your identity as a whole person by taking care of yourself first.

Friday, Nov. 26 (8:30 to 10:30 a.m.)

  • Navigating the System: Increase your confidence in accessing services, reflect on your caregiving journey, and plan for the future to avoid the stress associated with uncertainty.

The COMPASS for the Caregiver workshop has a $300 value. Thanks to sponsorship from Caregivers Alberta, this course is being offered for a $55 manual and registration fee. We understand many caregivers live on limited incomes. Upon individual request to Caregivers Alberta, participants can apply to our COMPASS Scholarship Fund and receive assistance with registration fees, if needed. Please contact programs@caregiversalberta.ca to learn more or to apply.
