  2. Burned out caring for someone? Attend this workshop

    Feb 5, 2020

    As people age and some become disabled, they may need a caregiver, and while that role can be fulfilling, it also can be exhausting and sometimes isolating. Anyone who cares for another likely has experienced the stress and possibly the feelings of helplessness that can come with taking care of an ailing person. To help caregivers through the many hurdles, The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) is co-hosting a free workshop on February 22.

    The workshop is for people who care for someone who is disabled or sick, adult children concerned about aging parents, as well as those who work for long-term care facilities. Although the workshop’s presenters will be in Columbus, their talks will be streamed live to locations in Akron, Athens, Caldwell, Fremont, Lebanon, and Ottawa. At each of the meeting sites, an OSU Extension educator and representatives from local social service or senior service agencies will be present to answer questions and encourage discussion.

Tune-in monthly as the team interviews Family and Consumer Sciences educators and other specialists to discuss how they address, and hopefully prevent this from negatively impacting our overall health and wellness.
