About The Conference

Caring for others at end-of-life takes a toll on professional caregivers thereby creating relational difficulties, personal spiritual/existential suffering, and compassion fatigue. Moreover, this unbridled stress is often accompanied by physical symptoms such as insomnia, overeating and general malaise, placing the caregiving professional at an elevated risk for emotional burnout, cardiovascular disease and other long-term physical consequences. This workshop will address the early warning signs of burnout and compassion fatigue and how best to implement strategies for better caregiver stress management.

The place I call home...

Chip Snyder at First Friday in Lancaster, PA One of my favorite parts of the Lancaster community is First Fridays in Lancaster City. I enjoy walking the streets of the town in which I grew up and visiting the local art galleries, restaurants, museums and taking in the beautiful architecture. It's is a wonderful example of the history, local arts, and culture found in my home town. Being a part of such a thriving community is exhilarating to me. — Charles F. “Chad” Snyder III General Manager, Licensed Funeral Director
