HOSTED BY VHA HOME HEALTHCARE – PRESENTATION BY SASKIA JENNINGS

What is compassionate communication? How can it help you to make your caregiving journey more effective and fulfilling? How does it help the person you care for?

In this free webinar you will learn the essentials of compassionate communication that are easy to apply in your daily caregiver life and will help you:

  • to understand your own needs and the needs of your loved ones
  • how and when to reach out for support
  • to make better decisions & choices
  • to find the right resources.

Do you often feel you’re lacking patience?
Saskia will teach you a simple exercise: From “Impatient” to “I’m Patient” in five seconds flat!
This exercise has been proven to be helpful to keep your mind clear, feel calmer and improve confidence and focus. Practising patience will be easy with this exercise and it is highly effective at work, while caregiving or dealing with family dynamics.

Bonus: Saskia will provide a handout for you to download.
