Powerful Tools for Caregivers – Online

June 2, 2023
10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Caring for a family member or friend with a chronic condition can be physically, emotionally, and financially draining. This self-care educational program for family caregivers builds the skills caregivers need to take better care of themselves as they provide care for others. Caregiver participants learn to minimize the potentially negative impacts of caregiving in a six-week program emphasizing self-care and empowerment.

This FREE workshop consists of six 90 minute class sessions held once a week and led by experienced class leaders.  Class participants are given The Caregiver Helpbook to accompany the class and provide additional caregiver resources.

6 Classes with a direct focus:

Class #1:  Taking Care of You

Class #2:  Identifying and Reducing Personal Stress

Class #3:  Communicating Feelings, Needs, and Concerns

Class #4:  Communicating in Challenging Situations

Class #5:  Learning From Our Emotions

Class #6:  Mastering Caregiving Decisions

Workshops are currently being offered virtually through Zoom. A personal computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone with Internet access is required to connect to the workshop. If you are using a computer that does not have a microphone built in, then you will need a microphone or headset. A week prior to the workshop, instructions will be sent on how to join the group. There is no cost to attend. Registration is required and space is limited.
