Elder presentation on creative writing; caring for the caregiver
UK HR Elder Care and the UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging are partnering to bring you Dementia Caregivers Week
Creative writing is a technique we can use to find our voice and tell our caregiver story. It can help us find reason and meaning through inward reflection and allows us to pause for a moment from all the extraneous noise to find what is truly meaningful to us. Creative writing allows us to look at both the joys and challenges of our caregiving experience.
Studies have shown that creative writing can increase our overall well-being. It helps alleviate stress, allowing for an increase in mental, emotional, and physical health.
No previous writing experience is necessary!
