Carlsbad event to address self-care for the caregiver

April 11, 2017 by  

During an upcoming Carlsbad event, local caregivers they will have an opportunity to learn how to take care of themselves as well.

The Carlsbad City Library will be hosting a presentation by Taffy Cannon, who is the author of ‘SibCare: The Trip You Never Planned to Take’. She will be discussing her views on giving care to others, and also how those who are in this position can ensure that they safeguard their own physical and mental health.

Cannon will be providing tips on a wide range of topics that can make looking after another adult easier, and also what pitfalls to watch out for. Along with this, she will share her thoughts about how to decide what is important and necessary, and what matters carers can let slide for a while. Flyers can be placed throughout the community to let people know that an event like this will be coming up, and also how they can participate.

The discussion will be held in the library’s Gowlad Meeting Room, and it will run from 12:30 pm until 1:30 pm. It has been planned for May 9, and everyone is welcome to attend this event that addresses caring for the caregiver. Additional details, along with a listing of Cannon’s other works, can be found on the library’s website.
