Powerful Tools for Caregivers: Identifying and Reducing Personal Stress In-Person

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an evidence based series of six workshops that equip family caregivers with techniques to help them face challenges that arise from their situation. We work closely with our caregivers to navigate through feelings like guilt, frustration, anger, and resentment. Caregivers will also learn how to ask for support and help, how to practice self-care, how to make difficult decisions, and how to avoid caregiver burnout! This class series is not a support group, however it creates a supportive network of fellow caregivers. Benefits for caregivers are based on participation in the full 6-week series.

Four steps are presented for effective stress management: (1) Identifying early warning signs, (2) Identifying personal sources of stress, (3) Changing what you can change and accepting what you cannot change, and (4) Taking action. Tools to reduce stress are discussed. Participants learn how to change negative self-talk – which increases stress and erodes confidence – to positive self-talk. Beginning in this class, caregivers learn five relaxation activities that are easy to incorporate into their daily lives.
