About the seminar: Feel Better – Care Better is all about taking good care of yourself so you can take good care of your loved ones. As caregivers, we are less likely to give good care to our loved ones if we are feeling down. It is essential that we find way to keep our spirits and energy level up by focusing on spiritual, mental and physical health. Let’s go on a feel better journey so we can all care better.
