Family Caregiver Support
Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a self-care program for family caregivers that meets for two and a half hours once a week, for six weeks. This program focuses on the family caregiver.

This program will provide you with tools and strategies to better handle the unique caregiver challenges you face and help you to: 1) Reduce personal stress, 2) Communicate effectively with family members, doctors, and paid help, 3) Increase self-care practices, 4) Reduce guilt, anger, and depression, 5) Experience relaxation techniques, 6) Make tough decisions, and 7) Set goals and problem solve.
