A free group workshop designed to help family caregivers take care of themselves while caring for a relative or friend. Whether you are helping a parent, spouse, or friend who lives at home, in assisted living, or in a nursing home, you will benefit from the tools presented in this program. You will learn strategies to better handle the unique caregiver challenges you face, as well as how to reduce stress, communicate more effectively, make tough decisions, and reduce feelings of guilt, anger, and depression.
The Powerful Tools for Caregivers workshop is an evidence-based education program offering a unique combination of elements. The six-session workshop curriculum has been shown to improve management of emotions, increased confidence in coping with caregiver demands, and use of community resources and local services.
A brief informational and registration meeting will be held 1:00 p.m. Monday, April 8th in Meeting Room – A, Northfield Hospital, 2000 North Avenue, Northfield. Registration is required, as space is limited.
