From: Cheryl Bruene - Extension and Outreach Tama County , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Do you help take care of an adult with chronic conditions? If so, you are not alone. Over 43.5 million family caregivers in America provide a vast array of emotional, financial, nursing, social, homemaking and other services on a daily or an intermittent basis.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an educational series designed to provide tools you need to take care of yourself. If you take good care of yourself, you will be better prepared to take good care of your loved one. As a participant, you will learn how to: reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate your feelings, balance your life, increase ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is sponsoring Powerful Tools for Caregivers in Gladbrook this May. This program has been tested and evaluated through a grant from the U.S. Administration on Aging.

Classes consist of six, 2?-hour sessions held once a week. Two experienced leaders, Malisa Rader and Karen Amman, conduct each class. Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming help you take the "tools" you choose and put them into action for your life.


Sessions are scheduled every Monday for six weeks and begin on May 8. No class will be held the week of Memorial Day. Classes will be held at United Methodist Church, 715 Lincoln Street in Gladbrook from 1:00 3:30. There is a $30 fee for the program. For more information or to register, contact Tama County Extension office at 641-484-2703.
