Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Powerful Tools for Caregivers

In partnership with the Area Agency on Aging (Palm Beach and Treasure Coast) we will offer two six-week sessions of the Powerful Tools for Caregivers program.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is evidence-based on the highly successful Chronic Disease Self-Management Program developed by Dr. Kate Lorig and her colleagues at Stanford University.  Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a national program sustained by extensive collaborations with community-based organizations.  This program will provide caregivers with the tools and strategies to better handle unique caregiving challenges.

This six week curriculum will help improve:

  • Self-Care Behaviors (increased exercise, relaxation, and medical check-ups)
  • Management of Emotions (reduced guilt, anger, and sadness)
  • Self-Efficacy (increased confidence in coping with caregiving demands)
  • Use of Community Resources (increased utilization of local services)

The Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a program you can count on to make a positive difference in your life!
