JGS Lifecare to Host CEU Program for Social Workers, Nurses

LONGMEADOW — JGS Lifecare, along with Homewatch Caregivers, will present a CEU program for social workers and nurses, “Getting to the Roots: Nurturing Resiliency in the Real World,” on Wednesday, March 8 at Ruth’s House, 780 Converse St., Longmeadow.

Social workers and other care professionals understand the importance of caring for oneself, but putting this knowledge into practice is often easier said than done. During this interactive presentation, social workers and other care professionals will explore the key causes of burnout and compassion fatigue, strategies to foster resiliency, and realistic methods to implement a self-care plan. One CEU will be provided for both social workers and nurses.

Breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. in the Movie Room at Ruth’s House, followed by the program from 8 to 9 a.m. To RSVP, call Mary-Anne at (413) 567-6212, ext. 3105. Staff will be available for those who have yet to tour the Sosin Center for Rehabilitation, the only Green House model of care in Western Mass.
