Catholic Charities of Southern MN will be offering a Powerful Tools for Caregivers Workshop series beginning June 26. It will run for six consecutive Wednesdays through July 31.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational program designed to help family caregivers take care of themselves while caring for a relative or friend. You will benefit from this class whether you are helping a parent, spouse, friend, someone who lives at home, in a nursing home, or across the country. The program will help you reduce stress, communicate more effectively, take care of yourself, reduce guilt, anger and depression, help you relax, make tough decisions and much more.
During the six-week session, participants receive support from trained leaders and other workshop participants. The Powerful Tools for Caregivers program will provide you with tools and strategies to better handle the unique caregiver challenges you face. Participants also benefit from meeting other people with similar challenges and learning how they cope.
The workshop is sponsored by Active Aging Programs at Catholic Charities, Olmsted Medical and by the host, Fillmore Central Elementary Schools. The group will meet on Wednesdays from 1-3 p.m. June 26 – July 31. There is no charge for this workshop but space is limited so register today!
