Creating Confident Caregivers workshop planned
IRON MOUNTAIN — The next Creating Confident Caregivers workshop series starts Feb. 10 in Iron Mountain. This is a six-week workshop that meets from 10 a.m. until noon on Mondays at the Dickinson Iron Community Services Agency, 1238 Carpenter Ave.
Creating Confident Caregivers is a new program in select regions of Michigan, for family caregivers of persons with dementia and/or memory loss. Creating Confident Caregivers is led by trained dementia care specialists.
This university-tested program provides participants with information, skills and attitudes to manage stress and increase their effectiveness as a caregiver.
Creating Confident Caregivers brought to you in part by the U.P. Area Agency on Aging/Upper Peninsula Commission for Area Progress. There is no charge for the sessions or materials and respite care may be available through participating area agencies while caregivers attend the workshop.
