The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) will present Powerful Tools for Caregivers, an educational series designed to provide caregivers with the tools they need to take care of themselves, starting Nov. 4.
This program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions, and locate helpful resources.
Classes consist of six sessions held once a week. Two experienced class leaders conduct the series. Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming will help you take the tools you choose and put them into action for your life.
Participants receive a book, The Caregiver Helpbook, developed specifically for the class. A fee of $10 will be charged to defray the cost of the book.
Classes will be held at the Department of Health and Human Services, 1910 County Rd. NN, Elkhorn, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. every Thursday from November 4 through December 16, 2021 (excluding November 25). For more information or to register, contact Anne Prince at (262) 741-3157. Class size is limited and pre-registration is required.
