Being a family caregiver can be as challenging as it is rewarding. If you are a family caregiver looking after someone with a chronic illness, you can join the Montréal Institute for Palliative Care, in collaboration with the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence, for this series of informative conversations.
This series is an excellent forum to learn, exchange ideas, and connect with others who may have caregiving stories that resonate with your own. Next Session: Thursday, December 14th | 5:00 - 6:30 p.m., via Zoom. Family Support in Palliative Care, Helping Children Cope. Presented by Anita Mehta, RN, PhD, CFT. It may be difficult to explain death and ongoing illnesses in the context of palliative care to children. Families frequently require assistance in figuring out what to explain to their children, how to have conversations with them about death, and how to address any queries or worries they may have. Acknowledging the importance of honesty, inventiveness, and presence is crucial while assisting children in adjusting to the illness of someone they love.
The goal of this interactive workshop is to support families with children, who are dealing with chronic illness. It will demonstrate how to bring up the topic of palliative care in a way that is appropriate for the developmental stage and information-processing capacity of the child. This is your chance to connect, share your stories, and ask questions.
These sessions are FREE and will be conducted interactively online. You can register HERE. Registered participants will receive a link to participate via Zoom prior to the session
