This Program will be designed with your specific Needs in mind. It is an extension of the fact that we are all individuals on a journey of our own. We are, however, still an important member of the human race, even if we feel separated, withdrawn, misunderstood, ANXIOUS, fearful, DEPRESSED, FATIGUED, DEPENDANT (in an unhealthy way on substances such as comfort foods, alcohol, drugs, other human beings, smoking), feel frustrated, run down- NO ENERGY, have chronic PAIN, ARTHRITIS, sleep issues, loss of hope, self-esteem issues, support with cancer, and sensory processing issues including AUTISM and ADHD. You are not alone in your journey, however isolated you feel and this goes for carers of individuals who may not be in a position to care for themselves at this point in time as well as the person being cared for. This program gives the time and information to support those who have chosen to seek help and are willing to actively participate in their journey toward healing. The length and inclusions will vary depending on the conditions/symptoms, background of the person seeking support.
In the case of Autism and ADHD, particularly younger children, we would be offering information sessions to carers to help them support their child and empower them to view different approaches to Autism and ADHD other than the mainstream medication route. You will be offered information and tools to help the people you care for in their day to day lives which will benefit both you and the beautiful, challenging, sensorily overwhelmed, INDIVIDUAL, human beings you have been given the opportunity to support, understand and help flourish.
Your needs as a carer and also an important, individual human being will also be discussed. If you do not get a chance to take time out (even if it is just a few minutes to begin with), you will not have the same energy for caring, compassion, understanding, forgiveness and general get up and go to care for your charge. Eventually you become so burnt out and worn down that you become sick and tired, perhaps losing hope and perspective. It's all to easy to reach a point where you become depressed and forget to enjoy the individual human being you are as well. This last paragraph is relevant to all carers across the spectrum of conditions which have led to them looking after others on a continuous basis. Carers are some of the most neglected human beings in our society and there is a great need for time out and real understanding.
It is our sincere intention for the future, to begin the process for setting up a Benevolent Fund so that those with serious conditions who may not be able to afford to come to Essenceway Health Haven ,can still access important information and care, including retreats for carers. Although we would not be able to cater for multitudes in this manner, it is our hope to be able to give back to others in service of humanity where possible. Cost is Price On Application as this is a very INDIVIDUAL specific program, based on the wholistic background and personal situation of the person seeking information and support.
