On November 5, 2015 we posted a blog to show awareness of Family Caregiver Awareness Month this November and how important it is for family caregivers to take a break and have a “respite” and the importance of “self-care” as family caregivers. Keiro is dedicated to support family caregivers in our community through classes, seminars, and conferences.
One class that is offered by Keiro is called Powerful Tools for Caregivers.
What is Powerful Tools for Caregivers?
Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a course offered by Keiro. It is a 6-week course that meets for 90 minutes, once a week. It provides caregivers with an opportunity to sit down with fellow family caregivers to learn tools on how to manage stress, how to think about “self-care,” and most importantly to support one another through each of our caregiving experiences.
For more information about Powerful Tools for Caregivers, please visit our website at http://www.keiro.org or contact Mei Kameda at 213.873.5710. We will be offering Powerful Tools for Caregivers in our community in 2016 – stay tuned for more information on dates!
