Caregiving Workshops

Sponsored by the Great Place to Work Work/Life Balance Committee, Get Healthy Now has created these workshops for UofL employees who are providing care for others: grand/child, spouse, parent, relative, or friend. You are not alone, there are a plethora of services and ways to seek support. The ten-month series will be held once a month in the Chao auditorium on Belknap Campus and digitally recorded to create a living archive for the campus community to access for years to come.

Caregiving Workshops

Are you caring for a loved one? Get Healthy Now and UofL’s Great Places to Work Initiative Work-Life Balance Committee are launching a new series geared towards employees who are caring for a grand/child, parent, relative, or friend. The monthly Caregiving workshop series is designed to support those caring for another by providing access to important resources, inspiring group support, and promoting self-care. Learn more about this new series launching in January 2014!
