Powerful Tools for Caregivers (PTC) is an evidence-based course designed with the caregiver’s well-being in mind.  PTC is based on the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program developed at Stanford University’s Patient Education Research Center. In the six week course (90 minutes per class) caregivers develop a wealth of self-care tools to: 

  • reduce personal stress; 
  • change negative self-talk; 
  • communicate more effectively in challenging caregiving situations; 
  • manage their emotions; and
  • make tough caregiving decisions. 

Participants have found the program improves self-care behaviors in terms of relaxation, exercise and their own physical and mental well-being, management of emotions, increased confidence (both inside and outside their caregiving demands), and their ability to seek out and utilize community resources.  

If you or someone you know is a caregiver, encourage them to take advantage of this training opportunity. Our goal is to improve the lives of caregivers as well as care recipients through outreach, conversation, training, and resources.  

Call Kathy Wehr, Caregiver Program Support Manager, at 410-313-5955 for more information or to register.  The cost of the course is $30.00 which includes all course materials.
