Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip is hosting “Powerful Tools for Caregivers," a new six-week course.
Classes will meet on consecutive Wednesdays from October 16 to November 20, 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm in the hospital’s Administrative Conference Room. This series gives caregivers the skills and confidence to better manage their own well-being, while assisting loved ones.
Caregivers will be taught how to reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate feelings and locate helpful resources. Attendees will also learn how to increase their ability to make tough decisions and balance their lives.
For those who would like to attend “Powerful Tools for Caregivers”, a $25 donation is suggested to help defray the cost of The Caregiver Helpbook but is not required to attend class. Preregistration is required. Please call Good Samaritan’s Pastoral Care Department at (631) 376-4444 for more information and to register.
