Powerful Tools for Caregivers® – Courses

Caregivers, people who take on the selfless role of caring for a loved one, have the great responsibility of making sure their loved one’s basic needs are met, which requires work and dedication. But sometimes, it is the caregiver who needs help.

By taking care of their own needs, caregivers can better care for those who depend on them. Powerful Tools for Caregivers® is an educational program offered at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital to help family and friends caring for adults with long-term health conditions.

The free course consists of six weekly classes, each focusing on different tools that help guide them through the caregiving journey. Caregivers will learn about setting goals, staying motivated and dealing with feelings of anger, guilt and depression, building confidence and ability to cope with the demands of caregiving.

The six-week course begins Tuesday, January 22nd and runs through Tuesday, March 26th.  Classes are held every Tuesday from 3 to 4:30 pm in the Brazos Pavilion Chapel, first floor, at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital.

Registration is required. For more information or to register, contact the Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital Spiritual Care and Values Integration Department at 281.274.7164 or snbowman@houstonmethodist.org. Seating is limited.
