If you regularly take time to help someone else with errands, personal care, living arrangements, or financial or legal concerns, you are a caregiver.
Caregiving can be stressful physically, emotionally and financially. KishHealth System Hospice is offering a free six-week class, Powerful Tools for Caregivers, Oct. 8 through Nov. 12. Classes will be held from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Tuesdays at the hospice office, 2727 Sycamore Road in DeKalb.
Caregivers will learn to reduce stress, improve confidence, communicate feelings and locate resources. They also will improve their ability to make tough decisions and to balance their lives.
For more information or to register, call Helen Maurer or Val Heintz at 815-756-3000. Registration is required.
