The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) is hosting a free educational series called Powerful Tools for Caregivers. These classes help caregivers take better care of themselves while caring for a friend or relative. Whether you provide care for a spouse, partner, parent, or friend, your role as a caregiver is important. 

Classes will be held virtually on Tuesdays from April 26 through May 31 from 5:30 to 7pm. This series consists of six virtual classes held once a week. Classes are led by ADRC’s Dementia Care Specialist and Caregiver Support Coordinator and are designed to help caregivers: 

  • Reduce stress 
  • Improve self-confidence 
  • Manage time, set goals, and solve problems
  • Better communicate their feelings 
  • Make tough decisions 
  • Find helpful resources    

Registration is required, and class size is limited. Participants will receive handouts and a book, The Caregiver Helpbook, developed specifically for the class. For more information or to register contact Kim at 715-381-4411 or kimberly.bauer@sccwi.gov.

More information for caregivers can be found on the St. Croix County website or by contacting the ADRC.
