Senior Services Offering ‘Tools For Caregivers’

Feeling stressed as a caregiver? The Palm Beach County Division of Senior Services is offering a series titled “Powerful Tools for Caregivers.”

Beginning Thursday, Oct. 13, a total of six sessions will be held once per week at the Mid County Senior Center (3680 Lake Worth Road, Lake Worth) from 10 to 11:30 a.m. The course concludes on Nov. 17.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational series designed to provide caregivers with the tools needed to take care of themselves while caring for a family member or friend, whether that person lives nearby or far away. The goal is to help caregivers thrive and provide better care.

This program helps caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources. Class participants will receive a copy of The Caregiver Helpbook.

Class size is limited and pre-registration is required. For more info., or to register, call Teresa Pedicino at (561) 357-7135.
