Powerful Tools For Caregivers Program

Lifeworks Erie is a wonderful asset for Erie seniors. As a former board member, I wanted to share a new program they offer for caregivers. I believe this program meets the level of "important information" for our readers who are friends of Meals On Wheels Erie.  
"Care giving involves many challenges. Too often, caregivers neglect their own health and well being, and put their own needs second. This often results in caregivers becoming “burned out,” depressed or physically ill themselves. 
Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a six week course, taught by two program leaders. Participants meet for 1.5 hours each week.
Tools that are learned include: reducing personal stress, communicating feelings and needs, setting limits and asking for help, dealing with emotions, how to make tough decisions, and dealing with difficult situations."
