Powerful Tools for Caregivers

"Powerful Tools for Caregivers" is an educational series designed to provide you with the tools you need to care for a loved one — and still take care of yourself, too. It will help you and other family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance your lives and increase your ability to make tough decisions as well as locate helpful resources.

Entering the Caregiver Zone

The role of a family caregiver is often unplanned and unavoidable. It can be both rewarding and stressful. This class will give you the tools to make caregiving more meaningful and efficient, and learn new ways to take care of yourself as well. This workshop is free, funded in part by Area Agency on Aging, and consists of three sessions, two hours each. For upcoming class dates, click here.

Bereavement Support

Although death is an anticipated part of the life cycle, experiencing the death of a loved one can be a difficult experience. Grieving is a natural reaction to loss that can be challenging in the physical, mental, social and spiritual realms of a person’s life. Grief is a unique and individual process that has no time limits. Hospice at Home’s Bereavement Program offers a variety of comprehensive resources to support those on their journey at any time in the grief process. The bereavement programs and services provided by Hospice at Home and Lory’s Place are made possible through the generosity of our many donors and volunteers and are provided to all at no cost, as a community service.
