Telehealth Powerful Tools for Caregivers

ISU Extension and Outreach offers Powerful Tools for Caregivers, an educational program for caregivers who provide care for a spouse, parent or friend with a chronic condition such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. The program provides information, support strategies, communication techniques, stress reduction ideas and resources to assist family caregivers with their concerns related to caregiving.

There are two upcoming Telehealth Powerful Tools for Caregivers of Adults with Chronic Conditions series scheduled:
• Mondays, Jan. 25 through March 1, from 6:30–8 p.m.
• Tuesdays, Feb. 2 – March 9, from 1:00–2:30 p.m.

“The virtual series will provide you with the tools you need to take care of yourself,” Thompson said.

The program costs $35 per person or $40 per couple, and registration can be found online at https://bit.ly/JanPTC2021. Registration deadline is January 15 to ensure materials arrive on time.

“Caregivers who thrive, rather than just survive, understand that by taking care of themselves they are better able to provide meaningful care,” said Thompson, who specializes in family life issues.
