Caregiving is rewarding.
But it can be challenging too.
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!
What is Powerful Tools for Caregivers? And why should I take it?
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 cost is $25 and includes snacks and the caregiver handbook.
There are scholarships available if the cost is a hardship for you.
