10 Videos: Quick Tips for CaregiversExpand +
Healthier LivingExpand +
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 125 million adults suffer from at least one chronic illness such as high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic pain or anxiety. Caregiving can increase the risk of developing a chronic illness due to increased stress. Healthier Living is a Stanford School of Medicine Chronic Disease Self-Management Program designed to help individuals set personal goals for their health and well-being and identify strategies to successfully achieve them. The program consists of six, two and a half hour workshops, led by trained volunteer facilitators. There is no charge to participate in Healthier Living. To register for the next workshop series or receive additional information, please contact Verla Niebuhr at 702.778.6702 or email@example.com.
Next workshop series begins April 22 - May 27, 2016, 12:30 – 3:00 PM

Powerful Tools for CaregiversExpand +
This evidence-based workshop is designed to have positive impact on the health of a diverse group of caregivers, including adult children of aging parents, spouses/partners, caregivers at differing stages in their caregiving roles, living situations, financial, and educational backgrounds.
Research studies demonstrate high rates of depression and anxiety among caregivers because they often feel they have no control over events. That feeling of powerlessness has a significant negative impact on caregivers’ physical and emotional health.
In the six weekly classes, caregivers learn self-care behaviors, how to manage emotions, increase self-efficacy and find community resources.
Tuesdays, September 20th - October 25th, 2016
10:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
