If you hire someone to care for a loved one while you work, call your mom weekly to see if she is okay, help a parent with finances, take your spouse to doctor’s appointments, or have a loved one living with a chronic illness, then this class is designed just for you. A coalition including the Larimer County Office on Aging is sponsoring a 6-week class in Loveland, scheduled to start soon, titled Powerful Tools for Caregivers:

• Fridays, Oct. 18 – Nov. 22, 1:30 – 3 p.m. at The Hillcrest, 535 N. Douglas Ave., in Loveland. Call 970-593-9800 to register.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers helps family caregivers acquire ‘tools’ to increase their self- confidence. If you care for yourself; it will benefit the person you are caring for. You will learn how to: reduce stress, better communicate your feelings, balance your life, deal with difficult emotions, and locate helpful resources.
