Powerful Tools for Caregivers seminar set for September 17

A caregiver is someone who has taken on the very selfless role of caring for a loved one. Many times the caregiver has the great responsibility of making sure their loved one’s basic needs are met which requires work and dedication.

By taking care of his or her own needs, the caregiver will be able to better care for those who depend on them. Powerful Tools for Caregivers® is an educational program hosted by Methodist Sugar Land Hospital with co-sponsorship from United Methodist Church. The primary focus of the course is to help and educate family and friends caring for older adults with long-term health conditions.

The free seminar consists of six classes, each of which focuses on different tools that will help guide the caregiver through the caregiving journey. You will learn about setting goals, staying motivated and dealing with feelings of anger, guilt and depression, giving you the increased confidence and ability to cope with the demands of caregiving.

This six-week course begins Monday, September 17 and runs through Monday, October 22.  Classes are held every Monday from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the Sweetwater Pavilion Chapel at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.

To register or for more information, call the Methodist Sugar Land Hospital Spiritual Care department at 281-274-7164 or email SNBowman@tmhs.org. Seating is Limited.
