Retreats

Printer-friendly version

Retreats are scheduled throughout the year and are planned specifically for the family caregiver as either a 1-day or 2-day respite from caregiving for their loved ones.

1-day retreat

These FREE retreats (registration is necessary), are comprised of an educational component such as identifying and managing stress, tips for preventing caregiver burnout, and interaction with other caregivers in quiet and peaceful surroundings, with time built in for nature walks or alone time for personal reflection and relaxing. Lunch is provided followed by entertainment such as rhythmic drumming or a demonstration of relaxation techniques for the further enjoyment and benefit of caregivers. Call our Education Coordinator about registration as retreats fill up quickly. (You may ask to be placed on a waitlist for the next retreat).

2-day retreat

Past themes have included: "An Exploration of Caregiving and Family Relationships", "The Caregiving Journey: Changing Relationships", "Anger, Intimacy and Grief: A Delicate Balance", and "Grief and Loss: Creating Our Caregiving Future."
