PLEASE JOIN US FOR THE WEBINAR
“Care for the Caregiver”
Hosted by Princeton AlumniCorps & Appleseed
Wednesday, December 5 at 3 PM EDT
Self-care is an important practice for everyone, especially direct service providers and volunteers whose day-to-day work can often be stressful, distressing, and taxing. This webinar features two speakers who will share self-care insights and practices they’ve gleaned from their work. The 90-minute session will feature presentations from the speakers, followed by a Q/A with the webinar audience.
The webinar is part of a partnership, funded by the Hewlett Foundation, between Princeton AlumniCorps and Appleseed with the aim of promoting network-based collaboration on issues facing immigrants and refugees.

John Robert Niec – Consultant
John has been meditating since he was a teenager and teaching meditation for the past 10 years. He has used it to develop a deep sense of calm and peacefulness. He has a Masters Degree in Music, and professionally he has worked as a project manager in human resources. In 2016 he was called to help his aging parents. This required a cross-country move from California to New Jersey. He quickly became cook, chauffeur, and eventually caregiver. His mother had a long, progressive type of palsy. His father had congestive heart failure. In May of 2017, John’s father took a turn for the worse, and by the end of the month both parents were in in-home hospice care. They passed a week apart. John has a caregiver’s experience, and insights into how to make the best of what was a very difficult situation.
