Stress can be overwhelming. We want to help. We are excited to offer a free Stress Management class at Renaissance Terrace on April 25th . There are two classes to choose from: 1:30 pm and 6:30 pm.
We know that being a family caregiver for a loved one can be challenging and at times overwhelming. Frustration is a normal and valid emotional response to many of the difficulties of being a caregiver. While some irritation may be part of everyday life as a caregiver, feeling extreme frustration can have serious consequences for you or the person you care for. Stress may negatively impact your physical health, or cause you to lose patience with your loved one.
Often, family caregivers are pulled in multiple directions. In addition to the demands of caregiving, you may feel compelled to meet the demands of your immediate and extended family, your friends and your employer. When you’re caring for others, it’s easy to forget to care for yourself. While it may be difficult to find time to focus on yourself and your needs, it is very important that you do so to prevent frustration and burnout. You may feel guilty about needing or wanting time out for rest, socialization, and fun. The stress of all these demands can have a huge impact even leading to depression. Joining with others going through the same stresses you are can help to manage the stress involved. That is our motivation in offering the class to the families of our residents.
Our class instructor is Kelly Savell. Kelly teaches people to reduce stress & improve health with a series of tools that include breathing exercises, self-care, & life coaching.
