Are you caring for an older adult with a chronic illness? Caregiving can cause stress on your physical and emotional health. Powerful Tools for Caregivers teaches you tools to help improve your caregiving experience. Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational program to help caregivers learn to take care of themselves. In this course you have the opportunity to learn to:
- Reduce stress and improve your confidence
- Learn from your emotions
- Learn effective communication skills
- Improve your decision-making skills
- Connect with resources
Classes meet for 90-minutes, once a week for six weeks. The course will be offered in person. This offering is in connection with a research study (the Telehealth Powerful Tools for Caregivers Effectiveness Study) to examine the effectiveness of the delivering the Powerful Tools for Caregivers program online as compared to in person. Participation is voluntary and you may stop at any time.
