Caregiver Stress Management Cruises. These are escorted tours designed to provide rest and respite for weary caregivers. There are also (optional) educational components. During these special cruises, there will be several one-hour presentations on Caregiver Stress Management Techniques. The information used for these presentations is geared towards the individual group members and varies based on group demographics.
The onboard presenter is T. Patrick Toal, MSW. Patrick is a contributor to the book, “You Are One of Us” by author Lisa Gwyther. He is also the co-author of “Pressure Points: Alzheimers and Anger” co-written by Lisa Gwyther, Edna Ballard and Partick Toal. Both are published by Duke University and are available for sale through The Duke Family Support Program.
As with all of our cruise and conference packages, you may choose to spend your free time in seclusion being pampered by the ship's staff, meeting people and making new friends from across the globe and / or participating in a variety of daily activities onboard or port-side. The choice is yours.
