Adult caregivers in the Door County area will have an opportunity to receive tips and training to improve their own well-being while caring for a loved one. The Door County Medical Center is launching a new “Powerful Tools for Caregivers” class, aimed at teaching strategies to boost the confidence of those entrusted with the care of a friend or relative. The first class will be held on Monday, January 7th, with further weekly meetings running until February 11th. Christy Wisniewski, a Geriatric Outreach Specialist at DCMC, said the class is being offered because becoming a caregiver can be a stressful experience.
Those interested in signing up for the sessions can do so at the DCMC website, or they can give Wisniewski a call at (920) 746-3504.
