Announcing Our Winter/Spring Community Classes

We are excited to announce our new slate of free community classes for Winter/Spring 2019. Along with caregiver skills trainings, like CPRLifting Techniques for Home Caregivers, and Universal Precautions, we also have classes to help caregivers care for themselves.

Our Self-Care for Caregivers class will help you identify and draw on the sources of strength in your life to help minimize stress. And Caregiver Essentials is all about setting up and maintaining healthy relationships with those you care for.

Continuing our focus on health and wellness, we are offering the popular Chair Yoga class again, as well as a new class, Food & Mood, which is about using movement and diet to increase your energy and improve your health.

And we will again offer Freedom from SmokingLiving Well with a Chronic Condition, and the Diabetes Empowerment Education Program. These interactive, evidence-based workshops are designed help you take charge of your health and include hands-on activities in a supportive environment.

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Are you feeling anxious, agitated, tired, irritable, depressed, angry, or sad? All of the above? Okay, you seem a little stressed . . .

The symptoms of stress can affect both your physical and mental health and have a real impact on how you think, feel, and act. Learning to see the signs of stress and having clear strategies for limiting its effects can help you to live a much healthier, happier life.

Practicing Peace: Stress Management for Life is a 4-week class designed to help you minimize the emotional and physical effects of stress and create a more peaceful approach to your current challenges. Taught by Marge Kaiser, this highly-rated class will teach participants how to overcome stress through humor, relaxation, self-care, and group support.
