SMOKEY POINT — The Stillaguamish Senior Center will serve as the site for two workshops from 1-3 p.m. on Monday, April 23, to help caregivers carry on.
During "Managing Caregiver Stress," Kamilia Dunsky will provide an overview of stressors commonly experienced by family caregivers, and offer strategies for managing stress and avoiding burnout even in the most difficult caregiving situations. Participants will learn to recognize signs of stress and depression, and will receive information about a range of available support services.
During "Humor in the Caregiving Journey," Ellis Waller Walker will involve the audience in seeing the positive in stressful situations. Participants will have the opportunity to share humorous incidents and will learn to reframe negatives into positives.
Both workshops will take place in the Don Regan conference and boardroom of the library building of the Stillaguamish Senior Center, located at 18308 Smokey Point Blvd. in Arlington. Both workshops are free, but preregistration is required.
