Geriatric Resources

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a new care giving class coming to Naples through the NCH Brookdale Geriatric Center.

It's not easy balancing a caregiver role and other parts of your life when you care for someone with a chronic health condition such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's or stroke. Powerful Tools is a FREE, six-week class (1 day a week) giving caregivers invaluable tools to help reduce stress, make difficult decisions, communicate more effectively in challenging situations, and most importantly, prevent caregiver burnout!

During these weeks, Powerful Tools will show caregivers how to take care of themselves, set goals and solve problems, help to reduce feelings of guilt, anger and depression, and improve coordination with family members, doctors, and paid helpers.
