‘Powerful Tools for Caregivers’ begins Oct. 21
October 15, 2019
Over 65 million family caregivers in America provide a vast array of emotional, financial, nursing, social, homemaking and other services on a daily or on an intermittent basis.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational workshop series designed to provide tools needed for caregivers to take care of themself. Participants will learn how to reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate feelings, balance life, increase ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.
The Aging and Disability Resource Centers of Oneida and Vilas counties are co-sponsoring Powerful Tools for Caregivers in Three Lakes beginning Oct. 21. This program was adapted from a model from Stanford University, and has been test and evaluated.
Classes consist of six, 2-hour sessions held once a week. Two experienced leaders conduct each class. Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming help take the “tools” chosen and put them into action for your life.
Sessions are every Monday for six weeks and begin on Oct. 21. Classes will be held at the Demmer Memorial Library from 1 to 3 p.m. There is a $20 donation for the program, which includes all the materials needed. For more information or to register by Oct. 17, contact ADRC of Oneida County at 715-369-6170.
