Caregivers are wonderful people, dedicated to their daily work of caring for another person. Sometimes, though, in the midst of everything else, it can be hard to remember to care for yourself.

"Powerful Tools for Caregivers," a six-week workshop series at LifePath, is designed to develop a wealth of essential self-care tools for hardworking caregivers to help with stress reduction, communication skills, self-awareness of messages transmitted through emotions, and more.

The workshops will take place from 5:15 to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays, starting September 15, 22, and 29, and ending with October 6, 20, and 29, 2014. There will be no class on October 13.

A $25 donation is requested to cover material costs. Scholarships and caregiver respite may be available upon request.
