Registration due Friday for caregivers’ class

Dec 31, 2013

Powerful Tools for Caregivers, a class designed to provide family caregivers with the skills needed to take care of themselves, is set to begin Jan. 7 at the Jefferson County ISU Extension Office.

Six weekly 90-minute class sessions will be held from 5:30-7 p.m. on Tuesdays Jan. 7 through Feb. 11. A light snack will be provided.

The sessions are led by certified, experienced class leaders. Participants will learn to: reduce stress; improve self-confidence; balance their lives; better communicate feelings; increase ability to make tough decisions; and locate helpful resources.

Organizers say, “When you take care of yourself, everyone benefits.”

The cost for the class is $10. The fee will be used to offset expenses and to support the Families County Extension Program.

Registration deadline is Friday.

For more information or to register for the caregivers’ class, contact Barbara Kistler at the Jefferson County ISU Extension Office by calling 472-4166 or emailing kistler@iastate.edu.
