Certificates of completion for the spring class of Powerful Tools for Caregivers were awarded Monday, April 18.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational series designed to provide caregivers with the tools they need to reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.

The class participants report reduced stress, depression and guilt, support and camaraderie by fellow classmates and instructors, an improved understanding of resources available, and the importance of caring for themselves.

Classes were held at the Grand Mesa Oncology Center over a six-week period during March and April. According to anonymous surveys completed, class participants say this about the classes:

"I felt very much supported by both the presenters and fellow caregivers."

"It is important to remember to care for myself so that I am a better caregiver."

"I now understand better the demands of caregiving and ways to cope through the resources presented."

The next Powerful Tools for Caregivers series is planned for fall in the Montrose area. For more information or to register, contact Sandy Walker at 970-765-3131 or sandy@region10.net. Visit the Region 10 website, www.region10.net, for class updates.
