Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Wednesday, Aug 7, 2019 @ 10:30 AM - Wednesday, Sep 11, 2019 @ 12:00 PM
An educational program to help family caregivers learn to take care of themselves so they are more likely to provide quality care. The series is 6, weekly sessions that are 90 minutes each.

 

 

 

 

Assisting family caregivers in caring for their own needs is a resource needed in a majority of West Michigan counties. In a 2016 report prepared by the Community Research Institute at Grand Valley State University, tiredness/strain on family toll were the highest rated problems, with over one-third of respondents feeling overwhelmed in these areas.

Participants will learn ways to:

  • Reduce stress and improve confidence
  • Learn from emotions
  • Learn effective communications skills
  • Improve decision-making skills
  • Connect with resources

 

We hope many caregivers within our community will join us! Please contact Holly Tiret (tiret@msu.edu or 616-63267893) with questions.
