Workshops & Support Groups

 

Workshops:

  • Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a 6-week course to provide you with the tools to care for your own needs, even as you care for others.
     
    The series equips family caregivers with the resources needed to reduce stress, foster self-confidence, improve communication, and make challenging decisions.
     
    Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming will help you take the tools you choose and put them into action for your life. Action planning emphasizing self-care is a major focus of the program.
     
    Contact Barb Asen, Family Caregiver Coordinator, at basen@cvcoa.org or 802-476-2681 for more information.
  • Living with Alzheimer's for Caregivers is a series of education programs offered by the Alzheimer's Association that provide answers to the questions that arise in early, middle and late stages of the disease.
     
    Hear from those directly affected and learn what you need to know, what you need to plan and what you can do at each point along the way.
