Classes for People Helping Older Relatives or Friends
We offer a six-week educational program designed to provide caregivers with the tools they need to take care of themselves while caring for their loved one. Classes are offered once a week for six weeks, with each session lasting either 2 ½ hours or 1 ½ hours.
Caregivers will learn to reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate feelings, and locate helpful resources. Caregivers will also learn how to increase their ability to make tough decisions and balance their lives.
Registration is required - Please contact us at (716) 858-8526 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register.
There is a suggested contribution of $25 for the course, which includes a copy of the Caregiver Helpbook.
Course is covered for all Blue Cross/Blue Shield of WNY and Independent Health members.
Course is covered in full by Health Foundation of Western & Central NY Cultural Diversity Grant funding for those that are uninsured.
