The Kenosha County Aging and Disability Resource Center is now accepting applications for its next online course “Powerful Tools for Caregivers”.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a free, six-week educational series developed by Stanford University that aims to teach the skills to take care of yourself while caring for a loved one.

The program helps caregivers reduce stress, increase self-confidence, better communicate feelings, balance their lives, improve their ability to make difficult decisions, and find helpful resources.

The online sessions take place every Thursday, September 9th to October 14th, from 2pm to 4pm.

If you suffer from the guilt of a survivor due to the global pandemic, follow these simple steps to guide you to recovery. Chloe Hurst from Buzz60 has the story!

Caregivers must have internet access and access to a computer, iPad or other tablet to participate. Before the first session, you will receive a short call from the program manager about using the Zoom video conferencing program.

Registration is required by September 6th. To register, call 262-605-6646 or click the red registration button at http://adrc.kenoshacounty.org.

Tui Wyllie sent this photo. “This monarch caterpillar enjoys marsh milkweed that I planted in my yard,” said Wyllie. “After that, it turns into a doll or doll. A monarch is a doll that lasts eight to 15 days. The butterfly’s orange and black wings appear the day before it is born. The changes that happen in a doll are like magic. ”Wyllie quotes the monarchist Lincoln Brower:“ It’s like a mouse turning into a hummingbird. ”Do you have a photo to share?
