Taking care of a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia is a demanding role. Caregivers often suffer from high levels of stress. Consequently, this can lead to feelings of guilt, sadness, isolation, and burnout. These negative emotions not only inhibit a caregiver’s ability to tend to others. They also impair the caregiver’s quality of life and longevity. Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational program designed to help caregivers take care of themselves so that they may take better care of their friend or relative.
The 6-week class helps you:
- reduce stress
- improve self confidence
- communicate your feelings better
- balance your life
- increase your ability to make tough decisions
- locate helpful resources
Be aware of your vulnerability to stress! We are here to help you develop skills that can enable you to care for yourself while caring for others. Since we have found these courses extremely helpful, we offer Powerful Tools for Caregivers courses on a regular basis. See below for open classes!
