Community Community 10-minute Talks: A New Way to Reach Out to Caregivers By Nancy Weil, OGR Member Resources Director Included with your OGR membership The pandemic has been especially challenging for professionals working in healthcare. Nursing homes, hospices and hospitals have all had the stress of handling the unknown while trying to maintain their own health and wellness. Show them a little love through OGR’s new community outreach program, a series of six “10-minute Talks: Coping During COVID-19” designed to give frontline workers a brief respite from their duties. Each of these programs is designed to stand alone so they can pick and choose which topics appeal to them. Plus, the short duration makes these a great way to recharge during a break or watching at home. Topics covered are: • Step Away from Stress • A Moment for Mindfulness • 3 Emotional ‘Cousins’: Worry, Stress and Fear • Unsupported Loss and Grief • Faith as a Spiritual Journey • Pivot Toward the Positive Led by OGR Member Resources Director Nancy Weil with Andrew Loos from OGR member Heartland Cremation and Heather Braatz, licensed funeral director from Worsham College of Mortuary Science, these lighthearted and entertaining talks are sure to bring a smile to the faces of those on the front lines.
