Class provides caregivers with self-care tools

Community Partners is sponsoring a "Powerful Tools for Caregivers" class beginning Jan. 18. Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational series designed to provide caregivers with the tools they need to take care of themselves.

This program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.

The six-week class is Thursdays, 1-2:30 p.m., from Jan.18 to Feb. 22 at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 602 Fourth Ave., Two Harbors.

The cost is $35 and includes the "Caregiver Helpbook."

For more information or to register, contact Barbara Haynes or Linda Kinnunen at (218) 834-8024. Class size is limited. Pre-registration is required by Jan. 12.
