057 - Once a Caregiver, Always a Caregiver with Martha Rañon

Episode Summary

Hello listeners, here we are at the last episode of 2017! This year flew by and I'm glad soon we will be able to say adios to this year. This week, we have a conversation with Martha Rañon. Martha, is the Director of Education & Programs for Southern Caregiver Resource Center. Martha first became a caregiver to her great aunt who was 93 and had Dementia. With little knowledge on how to be a Caregiver, Martha reached out to Southern Caregiver Resource Center and became a client they taught her the importance of self-care and knowing what the resources are. Martha now teaches classes and puts together workshops and conferences throughout San Diego County with the hopes of empowering caregivers everywhere to let them know that they don’t have to do this alone. That there is a network of care that is out there for you and you can access it and learn from others who are in the same situation. This episode is relevant to this Holiday season because a lot of us are caregivers without realizing it. Like Martha said, just breathe. There are a lot of resources available and remember that self-care is so important. Also, at the end of this episode, I give you a special announcement. So make sure you stay until the very end. I'm excited to launch the Cafe con Pam Accountability Group! Head over to spreadideasmovepeople.com/accountability to sign up and get updates. Listeners, thank you for hanging out with me these last 12 months! See you again in 2018! Stay shining! @cafeconpampodcast
