WOW program focuses on ‘Self-Care’ for caregivers

Debby Smith, RN, presents a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum entitled “Self-Care While Caregiving” starting at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 12, at at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 Blake Ave., Sequim.


“Self-care while caregiving is a relatively new concept,” Smith said. “It is vital that the caregiver’s needs are acknowledged and met.”


Smith has been a registered nurse for 30 years and has watched her own mother die while caring for her father over five years and neglecting to care for herself.


WOW! Working on Wellness is a health education program of Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic.
