Our Well-Being: A Webinar Series Sharing Wellness Resources

As we cannot give what we do not have, associate health, spirituality and security are critical to providing compassionate care. During COVID-19 and the "new normal" that will exist thereafter, self-care — Body, Mind and Spirit — is essential whether in direct patient or resident care, in administration or someone whose work process has been abruptly changed. This four-part webinar series shared CHA member practices and additional trusted wellness resources, practices and programs to help all involved in Catholic health care identify and address their immediate needs, as well as the post-COVID reality.
