What is Powerful Tools for Caregivers?
Caregiving is rewarding, but, let’s face it— caregiving also can be stressful—physically, emotionally, and financially. Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a class designed to provide you, the family caregiver, with the skills you need to take care of yourself.  Sessions are every Wednesday for six weeks beginning May 20. Classes will be held The Center, 714 S. Main St. in Council Bluffs from 9:00 a.m. to11:30 a.m. There is no fee for the series but registration is requested before May 15 so handouts may be prepared. Participants receive a Caregiver Helpbook (a $30 value).
