caregiversHawaii Community Caregiver Network, an all-volunteer nonprofit based in Kona, will offer “Powerful Tools for Caregivers” classes in Kona beginning in July.

PTC is a free series of six, two-hour classes designed to help family members cope with the demands of caring for their loved ones.

Classes are led by a pair of trained community volunteers—most of whom are family caregivers themselves.

This nationwide program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, increase their ability to make tough decisions, learn about resources and balance their lives.

To see the content of each session, look at the PTC national website.
