Those who are responsible for the primary care of others will often neglect their own care. This was the premise undertaken at the initial Nurture Your Soul™ Caregivers Conference, a project created to raise awareness concerning the lack of self-care for those that look after children, the elderly, or sick and disabled individuals.
Caregivers experience ongoing stress, and often have feelings of guilt when considering their own needs. To provide solutions to these problems, the conference has chosen topics to address common issues, including Self-Care, Estate Planning, Mediation, Medicare and Caregiver Support.
The conference will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 12 at the Wesley Ridge Retirement Community, an assisted living facility in Reynoldsburg. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Nursing professionals who attend the conference will earn four contact hours towards a Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
Cost: Professionals – $49, Public admission – $29. Location: 2225 Taylor Park Dr. For more information, call 614-476-8680 or email Info@NurtureYourSoulCaregiversConference.com. Also visit NurtureYourSoulCaregiversConference.com.
