Self-Care: The Secret to Surviving!

Long term care facilities are incredibly stressful environments. Working with people can be stressful. The staffing crisis and COVID-19 have exacerbated the stress creating even more challenges for those who work in long term care. This session is aimed at reinvigorating your passion for long term care by providing you with tools and resources you can immediately use to decrease your perceived stress levels and help your team members do the same. Self-care is absolutely essential and is the secret to surviving stressful situations. If you are not taking care of yourself first, how can you be expected to take care of others. It is time to put yourself first!

This is an abbreviated course that includes an interactive quiz to help individuals measure their stress levels followed by strategies that can be individualized to cope with that stress.  Managers and supervisors are encouraged to make this course available to staff members experiencing stress and to use the course as a preventative educational tool to help employees cope with inevitable work stresses.
