"A" Tips for Breaking Free from Caregiver Guilt

Guilty as Charged! But who placed the charges and who is the judge?! Many caregivers judge themselves.

In this webinar, self development coach, Eleanor Silverberg will explore with you the common feelings of guilt experienced by family members of individuals with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or other chronic conditions.

There are several reasons you may be feeling guilty such as the inability to continue providing care, having to move your family member into long-term-care, taking time for yourself, not being patient enough and the resent for having to take on the caregiving role. If you live far away, you may feel guilty that you are not able to help. Continuous feelings of guilt can have adverse effects such as illness, headaches, stomach disorders, poor sleep, fatigue and cardiovascular strain which can be detriment to work performance – affecting the ability to provide care. To help in strategizing, Eleanor will share guilt-related caregiver stories and demonstrate the 3-A Coping Tool: Acknowledge, Assess, Assist featured in her book “Keeping It Together: How to Cope as a Family Caregiver without Losing Your Sanity”.
