Powerful Tools

Powerful Tools for Caregivers (PTC) is a series of classes designed to empower family caregivers of older adults or those of any age with chronic illness to take better care of themselves.  It is the nationally known evidence based educational program that emphasizes empowerment and self-care of the caregiver.  PTC provides family caregivers with an array of tools to manage the emotions associated with anger, guilt, and depression, all of which are normal and expected companions of caregiving.  Applying these tools enables caregivers to give the very best care they possibly can to their loved one. Caregivers learn how to survive and thrive during their caregiving.

Congregational Care Ministry is hosting a two day Powerful Tools for Caregivers Class Leader Training at FPC on September 20-21, 2017.  It is the nationally known evidence based educational program that emphasizes empowerment and self-care of the caregiver. FPC needs additional trained Class Leaders in order to offer the free six-week Caregiver Class Series throughout the year.  Applicants must pre-register, meet qualifications, be sponsored by FPC, and complete the interview process.  If you are interested in becoming a Powerful Tools for Caregivers Class Leader at FPC, please contact Michele Hendrix at tmichelehendrix@icloud.com or 832-731-6127 or Stephanie Garcia at stephanieg@fpc.org for the application.
