“If you can hold a crayon, you can do this work” 
~ Lucia Capacchione, PhD

At Kensington Senior Living, we understand the unique and complex needs of being a caregiver. Many times, as caregivers, we are overwhelmed with caring for our loved ones and end up neglecting ourselves.  That is why it is so important to learn to love ourselves as caregivers before we can care for others.

We are thrilled to partner once again with Dr. Marsha Nelson for this seven-week series, Rx for Curing Caregiver Burn-Out, based on Recovery of Your Inner Child by Lucia Capacchione, PhD, ATR, REAT.

During this series, you will be introduced to creative tools to help us a caregiver to build awareness of ourselves such as breathing techniques, drawing, and writing prompts that will reduce your tension level, teach you how to relax quickly and effectively and in the end nurture our minds and bodies.
