September Webinars - Free for MFN Members
Alzheimer's and Managing Stress

Presented by Robyn Caruso , Founder of The Stress Management Institute for Health Professionals

There are currently 43.5 million caregivers in the United States who feel the effects of chronic stress. Many of these individuals do not take time out for themselves to de-stress and workout. Currently, 1 in 4 caregivers spend 41 hours on average a week providing care. Caregivers usually feel guilty about even the thought of taking time away from the person they are caring for. The good news is that fitness professionals can make a huge impact when working with this population by providing personal training and wellness services. Fitness professionals can effectively work with caregivers to become more resilient to stress through traditional personal training and implementation of health promotion techniques. Learn some of the signs and symptoms of chronic stress, Compassion Fatigue, and caregiver burnout. Fitness and wellness programming for caregivers is very rewarding when you notice the positive changes that are made mentally and physically.

Member Spotlight
Tracy Markley, Fitness Specialist and Author in Florence, OR

"I would advise other professionals to learn muscles and the science of movement of the body. I also would advice to be a good communicator and that that also means listening to what the clients feels and says. Especially with special populations because each case is different and each person is different. Special population workouts are definitely not “cookie cutter" workouts for all...."
