Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an education program designed to provide you, the family caregiver, the tools needed to take care of yourself. Classes are held throughout King County. Sessions meet once a week, for six weeks. Experienced class leaders conduct each session. Interactive lessons, discussions, and brainstorming all have a role in making the program work for you.
Participants have expressed that they come away from a Powerful Tools class with “better communication tools to approach difficult situations,” “a variety of relaxation techniques” and improved ability to “identify signs of stress.”
