SEQUIM — Shelley Stratton will present “Increasing Positive Health Outcome for Caregivers” at the next WOW! Working on Wellness radio forum, which is set for 2 p.m. today.
Stratton’s presentation at KSQM 91.5 FM Radio will focus on the impact of caregiving on the caregiver’s mental, emotional and physical health and well-being, and on the question of how to know when to ask for help.
Event organizers note that caregivers — paid or unpaid members of a person’s network who helps with the activities of daily living — are most commonly spouses, partners, family members, friends or neighbors.
Stratton is a Sequim resident and board member of the Dungeness Health and Wellness Center, where she has volunteered as a nurse manager for nine years.
She is also owner of Bodhi Tree Yoga Studio, and in her 12 years as a yoga teacher she has worked with a range of students, both in the classroom and developing programs for various specialties.
