Reached your max level of frustration & anxiety? The LTC Support Line is here to help!

Tired of COVID-splaining everything? Reached your maximum level of frustration and anxiety? The pandemic has been challenging for everyone, particularly those of us working long-term care. As we navigate an ever-changing environment filled with competing priorities and difficult conversations our stress levels are high and taking care of ourselves may fall to the wayside. But now, more than ever, it’s critically important for us to consider our own well-being and engage in self-care. To that end, check out CPM’s “Mental Health & Wellness” page

In addition, we often need connection with another person to help process, provide insights, and give advice on how to continue to cope with compassion fatigue, stress, and burn out. As such, Care Providers of Minnesota has developed a long-term care support line. Made possible through a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) grant via the Department of Human Services Behavioral Health Division, we have partnered with Wellness in the Woods to create a Long-Term Care Support Line:
  • 1-844-244-5050
  • 2:00–10:00 PM, 7 days per week
  • Anyone working in LTC
  • Staffed by trained peer counselors who will provide supportive listening and skills-based consultation
  • Free, anonymous, confidential
Please share this resource with your staff—here is a video  that could be emailed or sent out via text.
Or send out this flyer via email or post up in common areas.
