The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) has openings in their free educational series called Powerful Tools for Caregivers. These classes help caregivers take better care of themselves while caring for a friend or relative. The interactive lessons, discussions, and brainstorming in these classes will help you take the “tools” you choose and put them into action for your life. Whether you provide care for a spouse, partner, parent, or friend, your role as a caregiver is important. 

  • Date: Wednesdays October 4 – November 8  2023
  • Time: 12:30 – 3pm
  • Location:St. Croix County Government Center – Rm 1216
    • 1101 Carmichael Rd Hudson, WI

Registration is required, and class size is limited. Participants will receive handouts and a Caregiver Helpbook, which follows the curriculum and provides additional tools to address specific caregiver issues. To register or to find out more information call Tara at: 715-381-4366 

Classes 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

“After taking this class I am a more confident caregiver! Having tools to resolve problems is a definite advantage in becoming a better caregiver and a happier, wiser, healthier me...and a healthier us!”
