Home Care Assistance Calgary to Host Public Webinar on the Topic of Caregiver Mindfulness

Calgary, AB (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

Home Care Assistance Calgary, North America’s leading provider of in-home care for seniors, is proud to announce the next installment in its renowned Healthy Longevity Webinar Series featuring experts in a wide range of health and wellness-related fields. The upcoming webinar will feature licensed clinical social worker and award-winning author Nancy Kriseman, and will cover the most common causes of caregiver stress and ways to prevent burnout by becoming more self-aware. In particular, Nancy will discuss mindfulness and the spirit-side of caregiving, two coping strategies presented in her latest book, The Mindful Caregiver: Finding Ease in the Caregiving Journey. This webinar will offer real time solutions caregivers can use in their everyday routines to feel more empowered and hopeful. There will be a special focus on how to help caregivers who struggle with unrealistic expectations and have difficulty letting go of how their loved ones used to be.

The webinar will be held on Thursday, July 24th, at 10:00 AM Pacific, 2:00 PM Eastern. Nancy will reserve the last 15 minutes of the webinar for a Q&A session, so we encourage attendees to come prepared with questions. Space is limited, so make sure to reserve your seat as soon as possible by registering here:

“In a world that increasingly revolves around technology, we sometimes forget that high touch with inviduals is important and necessary,” said Mark Brodie, Owner of Home Care Assistance Calgary. “Just as those we care for need physical care, they also need companionship; care that promotes healthy mind, body and spirit which we achieve through our Balanced Care Method program.”

Nancy has a Masters in Social Work and a Specialist in Aging Degree from the University of Michigan as well as a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Florida. As a licensed clinical social worker, Nancy has worked with older people and their families for more than 30 years. She is currently in private practice and presents workshops on caregiving and dementia across the country. As an adjunct faculty member at Kennesaw State University, she taught courses on aging, and death and dying. Nancy’s first book, The Caring Spirit Approach to Eldercare: A Training Guide for Professionals and Families, has won national awards from the American Society on Aging, Hunter College and the National Council on Aging.

The premise driving Home Care Assistance’s Healthy Longevity Webinar Series is that individuals who are well-informed will make better health decisions, become active partners with their healthcare providers in promoting their own wellbeing and encourage loved ones to also engage in healthy lifestyle behaviors.
