Events for November through December

Powerful Tools for Caregivers Workshop
Powerful Tools for Caregivers classes help caregivers take better care of themselves while caring for a relative or friend.  Whether you provide care for a spouse, partner, parent, friend, or a child with special needs; at home or in a care facility; whether down the block or miles away, yours is an important role.  This course is for family caregivers like you!  The classes give you tools to help: reduce stress, improve self-confidence, manage time, set goals and solve problems, better communicate your feelings, make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.
This six-week class series gives you the confidence and support to better care for your loved one - and yourself.  In the class, you will receive "The Caregiver Helpbook", which follows the curriculum and provides additional tools to address specific caregiver issues
DATES:    TUESDAYS, November 2 - December 7, 2021
TIME:        10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
