The Barrington Area Council on Aging is offering a six-week session of its "Powerful Tools for Caregivers" class from 9:30 a.m.-noon Thursdays, April 24-May 29.

The course is designed for those who care for a parent, spouse, or friend that lives at home, in a nursing home, or across the country.

This program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate their feelings, balance their life, and enhance their ability to make tough decisions and to locate helpful resources.

The course consists of six weekly sessions and is conducted on an ongoing basis throughout the year. Suggested donation is $35 per person to cover the cost of materials and instruction, but no one is turned away due to inability to pay.

For details or to register, call BACOA at (847) 381-5030.
