Session 9 - Managing Stress

Part 1 - What is Stress?

Stress - Segment with Occupational Therapist

Stress is your response to a stressor such as an environmental condition or a stimulus. It is your body's method of reacting to a challenge. Care partner stress is a normal part of Alzheimer caregiving. Here we have occupational therapist, Gina Shimoda, in a conversation with host, Liana Shannon. Gina will help you understand stress, how it affects your body and some strategies for dealing with it.

For reflection....

After you’ve watched the video, take a few minutes to reflect on the following questions.  Feel free to make some notes.

  • What stood out to you? What surprised you?
  • What will you continue to do in your role as a care partner?  What will you stop or do differently?
