Feeling stretched as a caregiver?

By Press Release


"Powerful Tools for Caregivers" is an educational series designed to provide you with the tools you need to take care of yourself.

This program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.

Classes consist of six sessions held once a week. Two experienced class leaders conduct the series (many are experienced caregivers themselves, who have successfully applied the techniques they teach). Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming will help you take the "tools" you choose and put them into action for your life.

You will receive a book, "The Caregiver Helpbook," developed specifically for the class. A donation of $25 to help defray the cost of the book is suggested, but not required to attend the class if you are older than 60. The cost is $25 if you are under 60 years old.

Classes will be held in Delta on Mondays starting March 14 from 1 to 3 p.m., at the oncology center at Delta County Memorial Hospital. Facilitators are Sandy Walker and Jane Dupree. The class fills up quickly. Call or email to reserve your spot now! For more information or to register, contact Sandy Walker at 970-765-3131 or Sandy@region10.net. Class size is limited and pre-registration is required.
