    Resiliency and Self-Care for the Healthcare Worker: Facing the COVID-19 Pandemic The Coronavirus is a unique and unprecedented event, and healthcare workers are struggling to care for patients. Attendees will learn tips for self-care and resiliency to help them navigate the COVID-19 pandemic as well as concrete steps and tools for remaining resilient during this challenging time. We will identify the unique stressors experienced while providing care in a pandemic. Discussion will include the balance of authenticity, fear, and resilience. The learner will recognize pathways of coping leading to resilience as well as look at realistic self-care strategies leading to satisfaction throughout the workday. This information can be presented to those not working in healthcare as well. The emphasis will remain building resilience during the pandemic, but without the focus of those challenges exclusive to the healthcare worker. This education can be presented for 1-hour CE credit. 

    1 CEU is for nurses, social workers and case managers.  All healthcare workers will benefit.

    All are welcome that are struggling with Covid 19 fatigue!

    This Free CEU is sponsored by Brightstar Care and presented by Seasons Hospice.  Presentation via Zoom on Thursday 2/25 at noon to 1pm.

    RSVP to by 2/22 for Zoom link.

It is specifically designed to be simple to use for seniors or anyone who is not comfortable with today’s cell phones or computers.  A simple tap on one of the GrandPad’s large icons allows the user to make a phone call (either audio or video), view photos or play games and music.  Emails are simple to create using voice recording and sent with a touch of a button.  The intuitive interface allows the user to tap on telehealth for doctor visits, or use Zoom to join group engagement activities with friends, neighbors or fellow residents. There is even a button to call The Option Group, so you can seamlessly reach your Care Coordinator. 

    The GrandPad is secure from scammers and telemarketers, only allowing authorized family members or providers to access the user.  The Option Group is committed to providing the GrandPad service to our clients.
