RESILIENCE AND RENEWAL FOR CAREGIVERS
Americans are aging rapidly. Elder persons—as a percentage of the overall population—are increasing exponentially. This dramatic demographic change, coupled with the ever-rising costs of senior living, memory care residences and/or in-home care, is driving a tremendous demand for caregivers. The working and emotional demands upon these caregivers, whether they are in-home family or professional staff, can be overwhelming.
Sonoma Coast Trauma Treatment is committed to addressing the high rates of disease, disability and morbidity in the caregiver population. Our community-centered program of services and referrals trains, coaches, supports and encourages caregivers in ways that enhance their physical and emotional renewal, building resilience and hope.
SCTT is proud to sponsor The Survivor’s Guide to Life, an on-going series of discussions between Dr Peter Bernstein (a coach and mentor with nearly 50 years of experience working with emotional trauma and its impact), and podcast host Jenny Stevenson (a seasoned coach and mentor who has worked with Dr. Bernstein for more than a decade). TSGTL can be heard on Petaluma Public Radio KPCA, FM 103.3. Episodes can be downloaded from Soundcloud, iTunes, Spotify and Sticher. For more information visit www.thesurvivorsguidetolife.com
