If you regularly take time to help a loved one with errands, personal care, living arrangements, financial and legal concerns or activities, you are a caregiver. Care giving can be stressful – physically, emotionally and financially.

DeKalb County Hospice is sponsoring a six-week class, titled Powerful Tools for Caregivers, to be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, March 19 through April 23, at the DeKalb County Hospice office, DeKalb.

In the class, caregivers learn how to reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate feelings, and locate helpful resources. Attendees also learn how to increase their ability to make tough decisions and balance their lives.

The 90-minute sessions are designed to be especially helpful for caregivers with limited time. There is no cost for class participation.Each participant receives a copy of “The Caregiver Helpbook.”

For more information or to register, contact Helen Maurer or Val Heintz at the DeKalb County Hospice, 815-756-3000. Class size is limited, advance registration needed.
