Sustainable Caregiving for Care Partners of People with Neurologic Illness* is a live-online program of eight weekly 90-minute classes. In each class, you will learn evidence-based skills to help make your caregiving sustainable.

Teaching methods include brief lecture periods mixed with experiential exercises. You will also have opportunities to speak with others in structured break-out groups (pairs or triads) as well as in the larger group.

Each class will have its own theme and the opportunity to practice new skills in a safe place, so that they’re more available during the days ahead. Themes include:

  • Attentional balance and grounding
  • Positive intention setting
  • Repertoire of stress responses and meeting difficult emotions
  • Mindful self-compassion
  • Challenging relationships and patients’ concerns around “being a burden”
  • Reframing chronic sorrow
  • Balance and growth in adversity
  • ‘What works for me?’ -- wellness journals to cultivate a positive mindset

* Any serious illness that impairs neurologic function, such as Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury, brain tumors.
