Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Sunbeam Family Services is committed to your health and well-being.  We are taking all available precautions and want to make sure you are aware of the measures the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) is recommending to stop the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Due to COVID-19, caregiver trainings and support are moving online to Zoom.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an evidence-based educational series designed to provide you with the tools you need to take care of yourself. This program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate feelings, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.

Classes consist of six sessions held once a week. Two experienced class leaders conduct the series (many are experienced caregivers themselves, who have successfully applied the techniques they teach). Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming will help you take the “tools” you choose and put them into action for your life.
