“There is Power in Your Purpose: Caregivers can get what they want and need”

Program: Do you ever feel your voice isn’t being heard as a family caregiver? Do you think that the health care system doesn’t fully acknowledge your health care experience as you support a family member or friend? Advocacy is the power to put your thoughts, needs and wishes into action. When a caregiver needs to advocate, they can improve the health and welfare for themselves and for the person in their care. This is part 1 of a 3-part series and will introduce the basics of becoming an effective advocate. You will be given instructions on how to access an additional Live Chat session.

Presenters: Ryan Clarke, Founder and President of Advocacy Solutions

Our presenter will address some of the reasons caregivers get angry, including the “3-Fs of Flipping Out” (Fatigue, Fear, and Frustration) and will introduce you to a three-step process that will help you develop an “Attitude of Creative Indifference” toward the people, situations and events that are the most upsetting to you.
