Growing Caregiver Resilience

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. (AZ Time/PST)
Location: Virtual, using Zoom
Cost: Free of charge

Does this sound familiar? You feel overwhelmed, which makes it harder to make decisions. You feel burned out and exhausted with no time for your own needs. You see life only through a caregiving lens and are missing out on what else is going on. You feel isolated and alone because others have no idea what you’re going through. This webinar will offer ideas to organize tasks, nurture yourself, and view your caregiving experience with an eye on personal development and realistic optimism.

Susan Stern has 20 years’ professional experience as a speech-language pathologist. She was a long-distance caregiver for her father who struggled with cancer for over 10 years. After he passed away, she became primary caregiver for her mother, diagnosed with cancer and Alzheimer’s, for 10 years, until she passed away this spring. While caregiving, Susan responded to a calling to become a board-certified life coach. She passionately supports caregivers who want to be emotionally, mentally, and physically healthier during one of life’s most challenging seasons. She guides caregivers to “spring to life” even when it is still stormy outside.

We have invited two remarkable speakers to help you discover practical strategies and tools to navigate your caregiving journey. Dr. Frances Marcus Lewis, Ph.D., the Endowed Professor of Nursing Leadership at the University of Washington Medical Center and an elected affiliate of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, is at the forefront of shaping compassionate and effective care practices. Her presentation focuses on changes in spouse-partner relationships when one becomes the caregiver to the other. We are also excited to welcome Amy Cameron O’Rourke, MPH, CMC, author and a featured speaker at TEDxOrlando. Her expertise has been showcased in numerous articles, TV shows, and radio broadcasts. Her book, The Fragile Years, published in 2021, embodies her belief that our elder years offer a beautiful opportunity for connection, meaning, and joy. Jayme West, KTAR 92.3 FM, Arizona’s Morning News, will moderate the symposium.
