Caregiver course helps release stress

Posted: Updated:

A south Georgia organization is making sure caregivers don't forget about themselves while they're busy caring for others.
 
The SOWEGA Council on Aging is holding a six week course for caregivers.
It teaches them how to relieve stress, communicate better with others, and make time for themselves.

Organizers say caregiving can be an overwhelming job, and they want to make sure caregivers can take care of themselves.

"It's just a great way to help you have one more little tool in your box of how to take care of yourself so you can be the best caregiver and take care of that loved one for as long as that is possible," says Debbie Blanton, Assistant Director at SOWEGA Council on Aging.

If you're interested in taking the Powerful Tools for Caregivers course, call the SOWEGA Council on Aging at 432-1124.
