Mindfulness for Caregivers

All Christiana Care caregivers are invited to participate in a weekly 10-15 minute guided mindfulness practice, followed by a brief discussion.

Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment on purpose, without making judgments about what we notice. The practice of mindfulness has been linked to happiness, health, and psychological well-being; including a healthier response to stress, improved focus, concentration and memory, and increased vitality and energy.

Meetings are held on Tuesdays from 12 to 12:30 pm at Christiana Hospital from October 8, 2019 to June 30, 2020.
