I just want to let everyone know about a super opportunity hosted by our friends at Dementia Solutions. They are going to be hosting a free webinar on the 15th of August. The topic will be “The Hidden Signs of Compassion Fatigue and 4 Steps to Prevent It”, a webinar intended to help caregivers and anyone who needs to regularly work with the caregivers of dementia patients. Learning about dementia has been a really key point in my practice, and I’m sure that’s something that other footcare nurses can relate to.
Caregivers play a crucial role in the lives of individuals with dementia, providing essential support and enhancing their quality of life. Dementia often brings about cognitive and functional challenges that can make everyday tasks daunting. Caregivers offer assistance with activities of daily living, medication management, and emotional support, helping to maintain a sense of routine and familiarity.
As footcare nurses, we engage with caregivers every day, and often see the effects of compassion fatigue. Compassion fatigue puts real stress on caregivers, and our friends at Dementia Solutions want to help provide some information to help confront that challenge and provide support and assistance to our clients, and the caregivers who support them.
