Recharging Your Caregiver Batteries
February 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm$79.00
Are You Living in the Sandwich Zone?
Are you working full-time and manage a household as well?
Do you feel used up? Do you feel worn out?
Have you suddenly entered the Sandwich Zone and you are sandwiched between meeting needs of your
aging parent and your kids all at the same time?
The ripple effect of this shift in day to day living is enormous to you, as a caregiver. It is physically,
emotionally and mentally challenging.
You need time and energy to take care of yourself and for your own needs to be met but it seems impossible many days.
But just as the flight attendant will instruct on an airplane, you need to put the oxygen mask
on yourself first, before you can help others.
Time to restore and revive is extremely important for everyone, but most especially if you are living in
the Sandwich Zone! It is crucial to make your well-being a priority, just as you make it a priority to care for others.
We have decades of combined experience as caregivers personally and professionally. We will help you
recharge your batteries.
Please join us on February 15 th from 9:00 AM-12:30PM

“It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another
without helping himself.”
