2020-07-28 | Summer Speaker Series: Strategies to Prevent COVID Fatigue

Please join Blue Water Homecare, Ascension-Seton Hospice, and Accountable Aging for a webinar with panelist Virginia Sampson, Attorney. In this installment of the Summer Speaker Series, you will learn “Strategies to Prevent COVID Fatigue”.

Virginia Sampson was a full-time caregiver to her husband for three years after he was diagnosed with A.L.S. while, at the same time, caring for four young children. Her youngest child was two weeks old when they received the diagnosis. She was a part-time caregiver to her mother for 10 years. Her mother suffered from dementia and other illnesses.

As a result of these experiences, Virginia was inspired to learn more about compassion. She has studied extensively about the new science of compassion including:

  • Psychological and physical health benefits of compassion
  • How compassion can be developed
  • How compassion makes us more resilient
  • How compassion helps us heal and thrive

She is an award-winning author of two books on the subject of compassion – one for adults and a picture book for children.
