Training Course Helps Family Caregivers Thrive – Begins Feb. 17

Boulder County, Colo. - Powerful Tools for Caregivers, a 12-hour course sponsored by Boulder County Area Agency on Aging (a division of Community Services), will begin in early February in Niwot. The course is for family caregivers of older adults and provides them with “tools” to help ensure that they thrive, not just survive, during their caregiving.

What: Powerful Tools for Caregivers
When: Mondays, Feb. 17 - March 23, 1-3 p.m.
Where: Eagle Place Community Building (N. 79th Street, Niwot)

Powerful Tools for Caregivers has been proven to help family caregivers enhance their self-care, reduce their stress levels, and feel better in general about their caregiving. The training covers topics such as communicating effectively, asking for help, making action plans for self-care, using helpful resources, and more.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is open to Boulder County residents providing care
for a relative, partner, or friend who is age 60 or over, or of any age if the person has dementia. There is no charge for the course, but donations are appreciated.
Pre-registration is required, at 303-678-6116 or InfoCaregiver@bouldercounty.org. Financial assistance for respite care (substitute elder care during class sessions) may be available to participants.
