Are you struggling to balance your daily life while
caregiving for a loved one?
The Schuyler County Office for the Aging will host "Powerful Tools for Caregivers," a six-week educational
powerful tools training provided by Lifespan, for family and friends who are
caring for older adults suffering with long-term conditions.
This program focuses on the needs of the caregiver.
The classes will be held at the Schuyler County Human Services
Complex, Conference Room 115, 323 Owego Street,
Montour Falls, from 3:00pm-4:30pm on:
• Tuesday, September 25th
• Tuesday, October 2nd
• Tuesday, October 9th
• Tuesday, October 16th
• Tuesday, October 23rd
• Tuesday, October 30th
The class provides you, the caregiver, with the skills and confidence you need to better care for
yourself while caring for others. Caregivers will develop a wealth of self-care tools to reduce personal stress, change negative self-talk, and communicate their needs to family members and
healthcare providers. Caregivers will also develop skills to communicate more effectively in challenging situations, recognize the messages in their emotions, deal with difficult feelings, and make tough caregiving decisions.
Participants also receive a FREE copy of The Caregiver Helpbook, developed specifically for the class.
Registration is required.
Please call Office for the Aging, 607-535-7108, for additional information or
to reserve your spot in the classes.
