Powerful Tools for Caregivers Starting in January

Connections Area Agency on Aging is pleased to offer Powerful Tools for Family Caregivers, which is an evidence-based class starting on January 12, 2021 to benefit Family Caregivers:

Powerful Tools for Family Caregivers provide caregivers with tools and strategies to better handle the unique caregiver challenges you face. 

Are you a Caregiver?  Caregiving takes many forms.  You may help a relative or friend with transportation, housekeeping, grocery shopping, personal care, medications, emotional support, or doctor appointments.

Powerful Tools for Family Caregiver classes meet online (via Zoom/required equipment – computer/laptop with microphone & camera.  An optional Zoom practice session will be scheduled if needed) once a week for six weeks starting Tuesday, January 12, 2021 and ending Tuesday, February 16, 2021.  Choose your  session time:  1:30-3:00 p.m. or 6:30-8:00 p.m.  Each class runs 90 minutes.  It is for caregivers of adults with chronic conditions. 

Class size is limited, and registration is required by January 4, 2021 to ensure materials will arrive on time or upon filling the class.  The Caregiver Helpbook and handouts will be mailed.  No cost for the program but will receive an opportunity to donate.  For more information, contact Jan Schnack, Family Caregiver Specialist at Connections Area Agency on Aging at 800-432-9209, Ext. 8116 or JSchnack@connectionsaaa.org
