Conscious Caregiver Workshop
We understand as a caregiver you are going through a lot internally which unfortunately you can’t share with anyone.
This workshop is a special initiative by our Founder since she has been through similar challenges with her caregiving methods.
A Conscious Caregiver workshop covers ways of effective communication, understanding of existing mental health solutions, sharing emotions, and self-care strategies.
