The Gift of Self-Care for Caregivers

Ann Bassoni and Rhonda Henry, Work + Life Connection Therapists

While everyone else is enjoying the hustle and bustle and joy of the holiday season, many caregivers are just wishing the whole thing to be over. The five week stretch between Thanksgiving and New Year’s is the most stressful time of the year for caregivers. Join us to explore ways to de-stress and be more appreciative of ourselves during this very demanding time. We will be creating a gift for ourselves—a self-care box. Ann Bassoni and Rhonda Henry, Work + Life Connection Therapists, will be joining us.
