Working in assisted living is incredibly rewarding. It can also be stressful due to the pressures and demands that we face daily. The COVID-19 pandemic and workforce crisis have only added to the stress and challenges for those who work in this industry. If we are to change our future, we must start with empowering our teams and providing them with the tools and resources they need to fight stress, fatigue, and burnout. Self-care is a critical component to reducing stress, fatigue, frustration, and feelings of being burned out. This “Caring Together” call will focus on self-care and incorporating mindfulness into our daily routines. Please join AHCA/NCAL and AALNA as we partner to help you learn quick strategies, that can be implemented immediately, to combat the feelings of frustration, stress, fatigue, and being burned out.
Objectives: After attending this “Caring Together” call, participants will be able to:
- Identify stressful situations that occur every day.
- Discuss what mindfulness is and how to use mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques to decrease the perception of stress, frustration, fatigue, and burnout.
