The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) has openings in their free educational series called Powerful Tools for Caregivers. These classes help caregivers take better care of themselves while caring for a friend or relative. The interactive lessons, discussions, and brainstorming in these classes will help you take the “tools” you choose and put them into action for your life. Whether you provide care for a spouse, partner, parent, or friend, your role as a caregiver is important.
