Thursdays starting October 28th through December 9th (skipping Thanksgiving) from 3:00pm-4:30pm Central on Zoom. Are you the caretaker of a family member, parent, friend or neighbor? Are you feeling overwhelmed or stretched thin? Welcome to the club. More than 53 million Americans provide care for adults and children who cannot care for themselves. Whether helping an aging parent, a terminally ill spouse or child or any special person in need, those giving care often do so at a great personal sacrifice of time, energy and income. ABODE Contemplative Care for the Dying cares about caregivers because we, ourselves, are caregivers. We understand the many challenges associated with caring for those we love most. That’s why we’re offering the evidence-based Powerful Tools for Caregivers classes to help caregivers take better care of yourselves while caring for a friend or relative. Join us and learn the tools and strategies that will help you better handle the unique caregiver challenges you face. This interactive workshop is designed to empower you to take care of yourself while caring for a relative or friend – especially if you’re caring for someone at home, in a nursing home or across the country. Research shows that these classes improve self-care behavior, emotion management and self-confidence of caregivers and will connect you to more community resources. Our caregiver classes meet once a week for via Zoom for six weeks, 3-4:30 pm Central, starting Thursday, Oct. 28 and going through Thursday, Dec. 9. (We’ll skip Thanksgiving week.) $40 fee covers the cost of The Caregiver Helpbook, handouts and mailing. Interested in learning more? Please email Mary Thorsby at [email protected].
