Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational program designed to help family caregivers in southeast Michigan and Metro Detroit take care of themselves while caring for a relative or friend. This class can help you whether you are caring for a parent, spouse, friend or relative who is aging or disabled. It doesn’t matter what your situation is—whether you are caring for someone who lives with you, lives in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, or you’re a long-distance caregiver.
Classes meet once a week for 6 weeks. Each class is an hour and one half long. Classes are small—with only 8 to 12 people in each class. Going through the class together as a small group helps class members get to know each other and learn from each other.
