The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Chattanooga is hosting a “Caregiver Café” discussion with medical experts on the effects of compassion fatigue in caregivers. The event will be Oct. 23, at 4:30 p.m. at 7620 Shallowford Road.
The discussion is open for professional caregivers or those who provide care to a loved one commonly struggle with high levels of compassion fatigue – a condition caused by working in an environment that presents daily emotional challenges. The symptoms of compassion fatigue exact a tremendous toll on caregivers, but there are resources available in the community.
