Are you caring for a spouse with dementia, an aging parent, or an ill family member? Or are you now raising your grandchildren? Is the stress of caregiving taking its toll on your health?
If you’re feeling overwhelmed as a family caregiver Powerful Tools for Caregivers can help you cope… and thrive!
This 6-week class is designed to provide you with the tools you need to take good care of yourself. This program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions, and locate helpful resources. Action planning with an emphasis on self-care is an important part of the program. As one caregiver reflected, participating in Powerful Tools made her more “confident and positive” in her role and better able to provide care. “With help, I realize I don’t have to do it alone.” You don’t have to do it alone either!
This class is FREE but donations are welcome.
