The Kenosha County Aging & Disability Resource Center is again offering Powerful Tools for Caregivers, a free, 6-week educational series designed by Stanford University to give you tools to take care of yourself while caring for a loved one.
Caregivers are currently spending much of their time at home with their loved ones or are unable to visit their loved ones who are quarantined in care facilities and may be feeling a greater amount of stress.
This program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.
A new session of this free class will be offered online beginning Thursday, Sept. 10. Classes will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. each Thursday through Oct. 15.
To participate, caregivers must have access to a computer, iPad or tablet and have internet access. They will receive a brief phone call from the program leader prior to the first session on how to use the online meeting program (Zoom) that will be used; minimal computer skills are necessary.
Registration is required by Tuesday, Sept. 8. For more information or to register, contact the Aging & Disability Resource Center at 262-605-6646, or register online at adrc.kenoshacounty.org; look for the red registration button.
