Many seniors and people with disabilities depend on family caregivers or professional caregivers to help them live their daily lives. While caring for a loved one can be a rewarding experience, it can also be physically, emotionally and financially draining.
These caregiver programs reach out to caregivers and give them resources and information to assist them on their caregiver journey. We provide the following services for caregivers:
Powerful Tools for Caregivers (PTC): Research studies find high rates of depression and anxiety among caregivers and increased vulnerability to health problems. PTC is an evidence-based program that improves self-care behaviors: (increased exercise, use of relaxation techniques and medical check ups.), management of emotions: (reduced guilt, anger, and depression) and use of Community Resources: (increased utilization of community services). The 90 minute class is given once a week for six consecutive weeks. To register for a PTC workshop, please call Betsy Teasley, PTC Class Leader at (706) 650-5637 or visit the Georgia HealthMatters website by CLICKING HERE.
