Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Genuine self-care is crucial for family caregivers caring for loved ones. In this six-week class, participants will learn how to reduce personal stress, communicate their needs effectively in challenging situations, deal with difficult emotions and make tough caregiving decisions. This is a free class, and space is limited. The free class meets once a week on Mondays for six weeks, and is for unpaid family caregivers. Participants will also receive a copy of “The Caregiver Help-book,” developed specifically for the class. Participants are asked to attend all six classes. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required.

Facilitators: Lisa Bakke, MA, Geriatric Mental Health Specialist at JFS and Denise Malm, MSW.

“After taking this class I am a more confident caregiver! Having tools to resolve problems is a definite advantage in becoming a better caregiver and a happier, wiser, healthier me… and a healthier ‘us’!”  – past class participant.
