Caregiver Stress and Burnout (Webinar)

A caregiver is someone who provides care for a person who needs extra help with medical or personal needs. It is typically someone with a chronic illness, disabling condition, or is an older adult who cannot care for themselves. About 40% of caretakers felt emotionally stressed; 20% said caregiving caused financial problems, and 20% felt physically strained. As a caregiver it’s easy to feel stuck in a role you didn’t expect, or helpless to change things. You may not be able to get extra time, money, or physical assistance; but you CAN get more happiness and hope. Join Blue Cross Blue Shield to learn the signs of burnout and to learn ways to find help. This wellness webinar begins at 12 p.m. and counts toward 2022 Wellness Rewards.  Registration is open.
