Join us for “Health Literacy Series: Care Partner Burnout” taking place on Tuesday, April 5 at 1 PM in Community Conference Center.

If you had to care for a loved one who had the flu or some other illness for a few days, can you imagine how demanding the experience would be if it continued for years? Millions of people across the nation serve as care partners for a family member, whether it is an elderly parent, a spouse, a special needs child or another relative. It is not unusual for a care partner to become exhausted, stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, lonely and, in some cases, the care partner may even become ill themselves. If this is you or you know of someone who may be experiencing this, we invite you to join Nancy J. Niles, Ph.D., Rollins College chair of the Health Professions Department, in this seminar that will provide tips on how to balance your caregiving role and your own life.

This program is part of the ongoing Health Literacy Series. High health literacy can help each of us achieve one of our biggest goals: to thrive while growing older. By being equipped with the necessary information, you can make strategic decisions and remain in full control of your future.

This program is presented by Nancy J. Niles, Ph.D., and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
