Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an evidence-based education program offering a unique combination of elements. The scripted curriculum and the intricately detailed training material, have guaranteed its consistency and quality. The program utilizes a train-the-trainer method of outreach.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a program you can count on to make a positive difference in your life, and the life of your loved one.
The 6-week scripted curriculum has been shown to improve:
- Self-Care Behaviors: (e.g. increased exercise, relaxation and medical check-ups)
- Management of Emotions: (reduced guilt, anger, and depression)
- Self-Efficacy: (increased confidence in coping with caregiving demands)
- Use of Community Resources: (increased utilization of local services)
Another program offered in some of our offices is Care for the Caregiver. It helps pay for care of the loved one while caregivers take a break from their responsibilities. This program aims to support family members so that they may have the strength, vigor, and patience to care for their loved one and improve the quality of life for both themselves and their loved one.
