Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is evidence-based on the highly successful Chronic Disease Self-Management Program developed by Dr. Kate Lorig and her colleagues at Stanford University. 

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a national program sustained by extensive collaborations with community-based organizations.

An Evidence-Based Program that will provide caregivers with the tools and strategies to better handle the unique caregiving challenges.

This six-week curriculum will help improve: 

  • Self-Care Behaviors (increased exercise, relaxation, and medical check-ups)
  • Management of Emotions (reduced guilt, anger, and sadness)
  • Self-Efficacy (increased confidence in coping with caregiving demands)
  • Use of Community Resources (increased utilization of local services)

The Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a program you can count on to make a positive difference in your life!
