Support for Caregivers
Living Healthy Champlain offers workshops to help support caregivers.
Powerful Tools for Caregivers
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 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.

Living a Healthy Life Workshops
Caregivers who are supporting someone with an ongoing health condition may find it helpful to attend a Living a Healthy Life workshop on their own or with the care receiver. The workshop is also appropriate for those who are at risk of developing a chronic health condition. Caregivers may benefit from learning self-management skills to help support others and to take care of themselves. Caregivers may attend even if the care receiver does not.
There is no cost to participate in these workshops.
