Volunteer Luncheon Appreciation - Speaking event and workshop.
Would you like to deepen your ability to provide compassionate, effective care to those you serve while discovering new tools for your own self-care? Join us to explore the value of personal writing and storytelling in providing excellent care. Pauletta Hansel and Annette Januzzi Wick are writers, teachers and family caregivers who have helped hundreds of participants to incorporate writing, sharing and listening to stories into their personal and professional lives as caregivers.
They will share how they used this practice to pay attention to the needs of their mothers who experienced dementia—and how poetry and stories sustained them throughout their years of caregiving. No previous writing experience is necessary. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in writing and sharing and to learn new strategies to support themselves and care for others through their words.
