(ATLANTIC) Iowa State University Extension in Cass County is sponsoring Powerful Tools for Caregivers in Atlantic beginning December 3.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational series designed to provide tools you need to take care of yourself. If you take good care of yourself, you will be better prepared to take good care of your loved one. As a participant you will learn how to: reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate your feelings, balance your life, increase ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.
This program has been tested and evaluated through a grant from the U.S. Administration on Aging. Classes consist of six, 2 ½ hour sessions held once a week. Two experienced leaders conduct each class. Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming help you take the “tools” you choose and put them into action for your life.
Sessions are scheduled on Mondays – December 3, 10, 17 and January 7, 14, 21. Classes will be held in the Board Room at Heritage House, 1200 Brookridge Circle in Atlantic, from 6:30 – 9:30 PM. There is a $25 fee for the program; scholarships are available to help offset the cost if needed.
