Join us for a time of respite for caregivers to refresh body and spirit, learn ways of balance and self-care, and draw on the support of others who share this privileged call. Serving people with chronic illness or disabilities is a rewarding endeavor but often places extreme demands on the caregivers. They can become overwhelmed by stress, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue.
This retreat is for professionals working in hospitals, health care, human services, nursing, hospice or anyone in a care giving role of the sick or elderly.
Participants will discuss common issues, share ideas, identify the degree to which they are taking care of their own well-being, and determine ways to improve their self-care skills. Whether you are a professional caregiver or a family-member of friend providing care to a loved-one you will benefit greatly from attending this program.
Father John Collins is a Redemptorist priest whose ministerial background includes parish and retreat work, spiritual direction and counseling/psychotherapy, and pastoral work in health care and higher education. He currently serves on the retreat staff of San Alfonso Retreat House in Long Branch, N.J.
