About this Event

Powerful Tools for Caregivers® is an evidence-based curriculum designed to help family and community caregivers learn to take better care of themselves and manage their stress while caring for a relative or friend. Research shows that the classes improve the self-care behavior, emotion management, and self confidence of caregivers and connect them to more community resources.

Classes meet on six Tuesdays, September 15 to October 20 from 2:30-4:30 PM, MDT. Participate online or by phone using Zoom. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required and is first come, first served. A email confirmation with the Zoom meeting ID, password and instructions will be sent to registered participants several days prior to the class.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers will be facilitated by Missoula Aging Services staff Laura Degele and MSU Extension Missoula County staff Kelly Moore in partnership with UM-MTGEC. For more information or help registering, contact Missoula Aging Services at (406) 728-7682. You can also visit the MAS website for more information.
