Caregiver Training, Compassion Fatigue:  Understanding the Cost of Caring, Tuesday, June 17th, 1:00pm – 3:00pm, Senior Services Building, 4700 Dublin Ave, Midland.

Caregivers face unique challenges in coping with day-to-day exposure to stress.  This presentation is designed to help identify these challenges and map out effective strategies to cope with second-hand trauma.  In this session, Diana Julian, Bereavement Coordinator at MidMichigan Home Care, will address the causes and signs of compassion fatigue and help you develop a plan to keep yourself well.  Diane has a passion for empowering families and individuals.  Join her to get the important information you need as you work to find ways to nurture yourself.
