Welcome to Dragonfly Meadows

 

 

  

 "The expectation that we can be immersed in suffering and loss daily and not be touched by it is as unrealistic as expecting to be able to walk through water without getting wet". Rachel N. Remen​


WHO WE ARE

Dragonfly Meadows  specializes in personal and professional growth and development for RN's. LPN'S and other professional caregivers.

As a Nurse, you witness suffering,  trauma and death. The rewards that come from  being a professional caregiver are great, but  come at a greater cost. There are days when you are stressed and  nights you  don't sleep, you may wake up and think " I didn't chart that".  You are "too tired to care" and  can be  anxious  and  cranky with your patients, coworkers and family. The caring professions have unique challenges and stressors, that no one seems to understand.

Compassion Fatigue is a series of symptoms, both physical and psychological, that develop slowly over time in response to serving those in need, particularly those with a history of trauma. Compassion Fatigue is also known as Vicarious Trauma or Secondary Trauma. Understanding and managing these symptoms is key to achieving a long and satisfying career as a professional RN, LPN or other professional caregiver.

 We invite you to re-balance and re-claim a healthy lifestyle.
