Compassionate Caregiving and the Magic of Oops!
This training is intended to explore issues that caregivers face in providing a nurturing and supportive environment for the people in their care.
Caregiving for a person with special needs is an enormously rewarding endeavor filled with satisfaction, caring, and love. It is also an ever-changing field filled with challenges and pitfalls that can test our ability to perform duties with empathy and compassion for others and ourselves. Maintaining a caring relationship and being available for another often means opening ourselves up and exposing our own human vulnerabilities. No one is perfect. Often our best learning moments come from the errors we make. Embracing and learning from our mistakes as well as celebrating the victories are important parts of the continual improvement process. If we can cultivate an approach to caregiving that includes an openness to learning from our failures we are often rewarded with increased ease in our duties, more joy in our day, and healthier relationships.
