Powerful Tools for Caregivers
September 12, 2019 @ 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
An event every week that begins at 1:00 PM on Thursday, repeating until October 17, 2019
Caring for someone with an injury or illness – such as dementia, cancer, heart disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke or others – can be physically, emotionally and financially demanding. Taking care of yourself is important. Powerful Tools for Caregivers (PTC) can show you the way!
Powerful Tools focuses on your well-being. The class meets once a week for six weeks and has been studied and shown to help family caregivers:
• Reduce stress, guilt, anger and depression and improve emotional well-being
• Manage time, set goals and solve problems
• Master care giving transitions and be part of decision-making
• Communicate effectively with the person needing care, family members, doctors and other helpers
The class meets on Thursdays 1 to 3:30 p.m. from Sept 12th to Oct 17th.
The cost is $25 and includes snacks and the caregiver handbook. There are scholarships available if the cost is a hardship for you.
