Powerful Tools for Caregivers Workshop
In the six weekly classes, caregivers develop a wealth of self-care tools to: reduce personal stress; change negative self-talk; communicate their needs to family members and healthcare or service providers; communicate more effectively in challenging situations; recognize the messages in their emotions, deal with difficult feelings; and make tough caregiving decisions. Class participants also receive a copy of The Caregiver Helpbook, developed specifically for the class.  Please call us today for more information and to sign up for our next workshop!  (608) 742-9233 or 1-888-742-9233.  
Testimonials

 ~The meals were nutritious, well balanced and delivered promptly by such fine gentlemen.  I was always greeted with a friendly smile and a brief conversation.  That means a lot to a shut-in!  It was often the only human contact that I had that day.  The home visits by the ADRC staff were pleasant and much appreciated.   

~First off, I'd like to say that the ADRC social worker was a very pleasant person to talk with.  They were very knowledgeable of their profession.  Our meeting lasted about 2 1/2 hours and it sure didn't feel like it.  Not only do they know their job and fully understand where I'm coming from, they also had a good sense of humor.  I have two dogs and they treated the dogs like they'd known them for a very long time.  After the meeting was over and I understood everything that we talked about, the social worker told me to expect a call in the morning regarding a decision about my case.  Indeed, they called me the next morning with the decision and it was favorable.  I know that the social worker worked hard at getting my case turned in and I really appreciate that.  There ought to be more people like that working in this field and with the general public.  Thank you! 

~I had to make the toughest decision in my life which was to place my mother into an assisted living.  I contacted one of the ADRC social workers and everything went as smoothly as could be.  Within a few weeks my mom was placed at the Remington House.  The ADRC social worker was absolutely fantastic to deal with-they put us at ease and handled everything.  Thank you; you were one of a kind!    

~Here's a little "something" from Lodi to say THANK YOU for putting up with all my tears and "ditziness."  What a kind and caring person you are for helping those in need.  Thank you for being who you are and for the work you do for our elderly.  I'll never forget your support!
