Reducing the Symptoms of Caregiver Compassion Fatigue Utilizing Equine Assisted Learning

OpenIDEO – How might we better support family caregivers as they care for a loved one with dementia? – Reducing the Symptoms of Caregiver Compassion Fatigue Utilizing Equine Assisted Learning

In the fall of 2016, I participated in coordinating a pilot study to see if Equine Assisted Learning could be effective in helping informal caregivers in rural Minnesota to deal with the stresses of caregiver fatigue and burnout. This was a 6-week program that met once a week for 2 hours at a Therapeutic Equine facility in Hutchinson MN.
