Women As Caregivers: Spiritual, Pastoral and Practical Matters
Women As Caregivers: Courage, Comfort,, and Coping for Caregivers!
Everyone in her lifetime will be a caregiver, need a caregiver or know a caregiver. It is a position we seldom prepare for physically, financially, emotionally or spiritually. This presentation identifies and acknowledges the complexities and challenges of care giving. Using the scriptural model for giving and receiving care we explore the deeper spiritual aspects of care giving thus gaining valuable insight to understand, strengthen and protect us. The presentation will help you approach care giving with new awareness and sensitivity, equip you with new resources, and help you find strength and techniques for coping.
This presentation is divided into two segments. Part 1: Touching the Holy and Part 2: May I Walk You Home?…Courage, Comfort and Coping for Caregivers.
