Coping with COVID-19: Helping Members Address Stress and Anxiety

Presented by The Hartford

Striking an optimal balance of work and home was always a challenging juggling act for family caregivers. But the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t so much blur those boundaries as it did obliterate them. Almost overnight, households were turned into worksites and classrooms and parents into geography and math teachers. These new roles added new stress and anxiety amplified by uncertainty and isolation. This session shares effective coping strategies for caregivers, highlighting the importance of healthy routines, emotional well-being and how best to support children, who, like the adults around them, have also lost their sense of normalcy.
