“Tools for Caregivers” in Marquette

May 9 - June 13

Powerful Tools for Caregivers, a 6-week in-person workshop, designed for the non-
professional, informal family caregiver, will be held on Thursdays, May 9 through June 13,
2024 from 1:30-3:00 pm EST, at Lake Superior Life Care & Hospice, 914 W. Baraga Avenue,
Research studies find high rates of depression and anxiety among caregivers and increased
vulnerability to health problems. Caregivers frequently cite restriction of personal activities
and social life as problems. In addition, caregivers often feel a lack of control over events and a
sense of powerlessness which can have a significant negative impact on their physical and
emotional health. The Powerful Tools for Caregivers program will provide caregivers tools to
help reduce stress and increase relaxation, make tough decisions, reduce guilt, anger and
depression, communicate effectively, set goals and problem solve, and take better care of
themselves while caring for a relative or friend.  Caregivers will benefit from the workshop
whether they are helping a parent, spouse, or friend living at home, in long-term care or
across the country.  The workshop focuses on self-care for the caregiver, not on specific
diseases or hands-on caregiving.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers is offered by Upper Peninsula Commission for Area Progress
(UPCAP) in partnership with Lake Superior Life Care and Hospice. There is no charge for this
workshop, but registration is required. Class size is limited. Registration ends when the class is
full or on April 28.

to 5 p.m. (EST) for assistance.
