Take a Break Before You Break

Wellness, Work + Life Balance, Engagement, Staff Support

A dynamic program that engages audience members with stories and creative solutions to the everyday challenges of caregiving. Breeda's approach inspires audiences to take action and commit to improved self-care.

The message is that self-care isn’t selfish – it is survival.  Using funny and memorable props, like the Caregiver Sandwich Head, Breeda uses a light-hearted approach to tackle serious issues.

Technology can offer great help to caregivers if it's presented as a help rather than a new stress to sort out.  Breeda presents creative solutions to classic caregiving challenges using some new and exciting technology, as well as some favorite low-tech solutions.

Caregivers are often the last to actually actively care for themselves.  Whether it's due to exhaustion, guilt or lack of awareness, Breeda's unique approach resonates with caregivers and inspires action.  An engaging, fun and high impact program.

In addition to her presentation, you may include a copy of her new Caregiver Coffeebreak Tip book for each attendee.

This program is ideal for:

  • Organizations looking to support family caregivers and find ways to reduce employee burnout and turnover
  • Conferences seeking an inspiring and humorous keynote speaker
  • Forward-thinking companies who seek to offer stress management programs
  • Support groups for family caregivers
