About The Webinar
Becoming a care partner for your loved one can be a significant life transition. As a care partner, you are essential in providing love, support, resiliency, companionship, and so much more to your care recipient. Over time, the challenges care partners face in this new role can lead to feelings of burnout and inadequacy. Join us to learn about preventing care partner burnout, tools to feel more confident in your care partner role, and ways to improve overall well-being.
