The Sacred Journey of Caregiving -
A Transformational Approach to Life

Sandra W. Haymon, Ph.D. – Presenter

Are you the designated caregiver in your family? Do you often feel frustrated, angry, over-whelmed, and secretly terrified in this role? If so, this presentation is for you. The majority of the 66 million Caregivers in the United States are presently facing the daily struggles of Caregiving while they continue to work, raise their own children or grandchildren, help adult children out financially, and prepare for their own retirement. The questions are endless. The challenges are over-whelming.
The stress is tremendous.

The startling fact is approximately 50% of long-term caregivers will die before the person they are responsible for. Don't become another statistic!

In this powerful presentation you will learn how to take care of yourself first and achieve life balance so you can be there for those you love. Dr. Haymon’s approach to Caregiving, and life in general, will literally transform your life. Learn how to embrace the journey of Caregiving as your personal and sacred journey – a journey that has little to do with the person you’re caring for. Discover the subtle forms of denial and how denial impacts decisions which could cost others their lives. Using Dr. Haymon’s Red Flag Checklist, you will learn how to assess your loved ones’ true level of functioning and determine the appropriate level of care. Get off the emotional roller coaster of Caregiving and never feel guilty again.

  • Embrace the role of caregiver as a personal and sacred journey.
