Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an evidence-based program designed to equip caregivers with a range of self-care tools to help them reduce personal stress and communicate effectively with family members and healthcare providers. This is a program to help the caregiver take care of themselves.

This 6-week program will help you take care of yourself while caring for a relative or friend (no professional caregivers, please). You will benefit from the workshop whether you are helping a parent, spouse, friend or someone who lives at home, in a nursing home, or across the country. Please note that this workshop will not focus on specific diseases or hands-on caregiving for the care receiver.

This workshop will give YOU, the family caregiver, tools to:

  • Help you reduce stress
  • Communicate effectively with other family members, your doctor, paid help
  • Take care of yourself
  • Reduce guilt, anger, and depression
  • Help you relax
  • Make tough decisions
  • Set goals and problem-solve

The workshop covers the following topics:

  • Hiring in-home help
  • Understanding depression
  • Helping memory-impaired elders
  • Making decisions about driving
  • Making legal and financial decisions
