Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Powerful Tools for Caregivers (PTC) was developed as a 6-week educational program designed to help informal family caregivers (no professional caregivers please), better care for themselves while caring for a relative or friend.  Caregivers will benefit from the class whether they are helping a parent, spouse, or friend living at home, in long-term care or across the country.  Click here for the Powerful Tools for Caregivers web page.

REST – Respite Education and Support Tools

Respite Education and Support Tools (REST) is an originally designed educational course that provides respite training to adults and teens who want to offer care to those in need and provide assistance to their caregivers.  As a REST companion (volunteer or paid), you give the gift of your time to provide a valuable service. As a REST trained companion/respite provider you will spend one-on-one time with an adult or senior, giving only as much time as you are willing and able to give. The ultimate goal of this training course is to assist individuals to become effective companions and respite workers by learning the three key steps of support:  Prepare, Care and Connect.

It is designed to provide the most relevant dementia knowledge, skills, and mastery to support family members as they provide care for their relative or friend living with dementia.
