Family caregivers selflessly devote their time and energy to making life better for their loved one. All too often a caregiver will prioritize others’ needs over their own. Despite their good intentions, caregivers unintentionally take on too much responsibility and put their own health and well-being at risk. Join us for this interactive discussion on how to set limits/boundaries and recognize the importance of prioritizing self-care.

The presenter is Kelli Davis, BA, MBA. Davis has worked for over 20 years providing education and resources to seniors and caregivers in the Miami Valley. She holds a bachelor’s degree in human development and is certified as a Master Trainer in the Powerful Tools for Caregivers program.
