Semcac is offering a six class series to make the lives of caregivers and their loved ones more fulfilling.
The class is offered in 6 sessions (once a week for 6 weeks) , 1.5 hours per weekly session. The course is called Powerful Tools for Caregivers and is designed as an educational program to help caregivers take care of themselves while caring for an adult loved one.
Anyone who is caring for a parent, spouse, or friend; living in their home, your home, a nursing home or across the country, will benefit. It teaches stress reduction, effective communication, self-care, relaxation and decision making.
Join us and others in the community facing similar issues. You will receive a Powerful Tools for Caregivers certificate of completion from Semcac.
Some caregivers assume the job suddenly, often it presents itself incrementally. Your mother or father, your beloved spouse, a dear friend or neighbor, needs help as their health fails. You don’t count the number of hours devoted to the assistance offered. It is what good caring humans do, after all! Over time, caregivers donate hours, days and good bits of their lives and health, lovingly, without seeing how it might be easier, how their own lives might feel fuller, so they can offer more with fewer sacrifices.
It starts perhaps, with getting groceries and in time it means cooking and feeding that person you love.
You may be a caregiver and never considered yourself as one.
