Powerful Tools for Caregivers (in person)

One of the greatest challenges of being a family caregiver is maintaining one’s own physical and emotional health. The Powerful Tools for Caregivers class is designed to help a caregiver reduce personal stress; communicate feelings and needs; use community services; deal with emotions such as anger, guilt, and depression; and make tough caregiving decisions. This six-week class will be offered again at TUMC. The fee is $30 which covers the cost of the book.

Date and Time: This class will meet from January 31 through March 7, 2023.

Where: Trinity

If interested in attending, please register for the class by January 29. Contact Judy Croonquist at 360-582-1370 or Barb Parse at 360-683-2113.
