Classes for Caregivers Offered at Good Samaritan Hospital

July 30th, 2014

Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center will be hosting “Powerful Tools for Caregivers”, a six-week course unique to the Long Island region. Classes will meet on consecutive Wednesdays from September 10 to October 15, 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm in the hospital’s Administrative Conference Room. This series gives caregivers the skills and confidence to better manage their own well-being, while assisting loved ones.

Caregivers will be taught how to reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate feelings     and locate helpful resources. Attendees will also learn how to increase their ability to make tough decisions and balance their lives.

For those who would like to attend “Powerful Tools for Caregivers”, a $25 donation is suggested to help defray the cost of The Caregiver Helpbook but is not required to attend class.  Preregistration is required.  Please call Good Samaritan’s Pastoral Care Department at (631) 376-4444 for more information and to register.
