General Health and Wellness
The Artful Caregiver: Work
Increasing numbers of healthcare professionals are faced with the dual role of providing care-giving at work only to return home to resume care-giving for a family member or loved one. Effective care-giving can be measured through positive outcomes for the recipient. The Care-givers effectiveness requires learning how to balance their own needs with those they provide care for. Participants of the program will learn strategies to improve patient and client care outcomes. Numerous resources will be highlighted to educate care-givers about services, programs and products they can implement to effectively balance the needs of the client with their own needs.

Preparing for Retirement: Ten Years Out
Will you have enough to retire comfortably? Most of us imagine retirement as a happy time, a reward for a lifetime of hard work, full of possibility ad potential. We have good reason to see retirement in a positive light. Americans are living longer, healthier lives than ever before. In fact, for some of us, retirement will make up for a full third of our lives. Of course, this means that our retirement assets will have to do more for us over a longer period of time. This makes planning for our retirement essential.
