workshop series begins Oct. 21
Over 65 million family caregivers in America provide a vast array of emotional, financial, nursing, social, homemaking and other services on a daily or intermittent basis.
"Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational workshop series designed to provide tools needed for caregivers to take care of themselves," organizers said in a press release. "Participants will learn how to reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate feelings, balance life, increase ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources."
The Aging and Disability Resource Centers of Oneida and Vilas counties are co-sponsoring Powerful Tools for Caregivers in Three Lakes beginning Oct. 21. This program was adapted from a model from Stanford University, the release notes.
Classes consist of six, two-hour sessions held once a week. Two experienced leaders conduct each class. Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming help take the "tools" choosen and put them into action for your life.
Sessions will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. every Monday for six weeks at the Demmer Memorial Library. There is a $20 donation for the program, which includes all the materials needed. For more information, contact the ADRC of Oneida County at 715-369-6170. The registration deadline is Oct. 17.
