This six-lesson program will help you take care of yourself while caring for a child with health and behavioral needs. (No professional caregivers, please).

You will benefit from the class whether you are a parent, grandparent, kinship caregiver or family friend providing care. Please note that this class will not focus on specific diseases or hands-on caregiving for the care receiver.

This class 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.

This class is a series, so plan on attending all six sessions. All sessions are on Mondays from 12:30-2:30 PM.
