With an aging population many more individuals find themselves serving as caregivers. Many are caring for a parent, spouse or a friend. Whether it be in an assisted living situation, a nursing home or at home, being a caregiver can be stressful.

The Powerful Tools for Caregivers Workshop is coming to Waseca in August. The workshop consists of six sessions with a goal of helping you to improve management of emotions, increased confidence in coping with caregiver demands and using community resources and local services.

There will be an informational meeting on Wednesday, July 31 at the Waseca Area Senior Center starting at 9am. The workshops will begin August 7 and run for six Wednesdays at the Waseca Area Senior Center from 9-11:30am. To reserve your spot for the informational session or the workshops, contact Michael Maas at 507-450-1518.
