Are You a Caregiver?

It is time to make YOU a priority.
It is not selfish, it is truly necessary!

 

The ART of CAREGIVING is an opportunity to gain essential life-skills, effective strategies and self-care tips that are useful in your journey as a caregiver. You can also look forward to setting your mind at ease and alleviate stress while having fun in our art jamming session (as part of art therapy). Caregiving is easier when you are NOT doing it alone.

Building Effective Communication In Caregiving

About the Art Jamming:

Art is a wonderful hobby and team sports are fun. What if we combined the two? Wouldn’t that be amazing? Art Jamming is when a group of people get together and explore creativity, and joy through art.

The art-jam involves a group of 10 and lasts for approximately 2 hours. Every member has access to all the necessary art supplies. There is no prerequisite to know how to paint or draw.  There are no hard and fast rules, much like any other kind of artistic activity. The main idea is to let the creativity flow and to let everyone explore their artistic side. Art Jamming is for absolutely anyone and everyone! And we bet, caregivers will enjoy themselves in this one-of-a-kind session. The art-jamming activity for caregivers will be conducted by Outdoor in Asia (OIA).
