“Powerful Tools for Caregivers” is an educational program to help family and friends caring for older adults with long-term health conditions (e.g., stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and others).
“Powerful Tools” helps caregivers develop skills and confidence to better care for themselves while caring for others. It is a six-week series led by trained facilitators using a standardized curriculum. The weekly topics range from reducing stress to communicating in challenging situations and mastering caregiving decisions.
Many caregivers have found this class beneficial, including those caring for a spouse or partner, or adult children caring for parents. Whether the older adult you are caring for is living with you, in a nearby community or across the country, this class can help.
“Powerful Tools for Caregivers” class participants report they:
- Are better at caring for themselves
- Have fewer feelings of anger, guilt and depression
- Have increased confidence and ability to cope with the demands of caregiving
- Are more likely to use community services
