Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Every Wednesday, April 3 - May 8

Powerful Tools for Caregivers® is an evidence-based curriculum designed to help family and community caregivers learn to take better care of themselves and manage their stress while caring for a relative or friend. Research shows that the classes improve self-care behavior, emotion management, and self confidence of caregivers and connect them to more community resources.

This in-person class series will meet six Wednesdays, April 3rd-May 8th, from 10:30-12:30 PM, Mountain Time. Pre-registration is required and is first come, first served. An email confirmation with the meeting information will be sent to registered participants one week prior to the session start date. For more information or assistance registering, contact Missoula Aging Services at (406) 728-7682.

This session of Powerful Tools is facilitated by Lauren Crabtree and Kelly Moore with Missoula Aging Services Special thanks to UM-MTGEC for their generous financial support making this class no cost for Montana residents.
