Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an evidence-based program that we offer several times a year. It provides caregivers with a wealth of self-care tools to help take care of themselves while caring for a loved one. Participants learn to communicate their needs to family members and healthcare/service providers; identify and reduce stress; communicate more effectively in challenging situations; recognize the messages in their emotions; deal with difficult feelings; and make tough caregiving decisions.
