Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Fourteen Extension and community educators from across the state have completed training to be a class leader for Powerful Tools for Caregivers. Every day over 65 million Americans act as family caregivers. They provide a vast array of emotional, financial, nursing, social, homemaking and other services on a daily or intermittent basis.


Stepping On- Aging well 

Stepping On, a national evidence-based program, is designed to assist older adults to take control of their falls risk, explore different coping behaviors and encourage follow-through of safety strategies in everyday life. The NDSU Extension Service is partnering with the ND Department of Health to implement this program statewide.


Nourishing Boomers and Beyond 

As we age, we may not be as active as we used to be. Maybe we have put on a few extra pounds, or we’ve developed health issues such as high blood pressure or diabetes.

The North Dakota State University Extension Service has developed Nourishing Boomers and Beyond, a program to provide North Dakotans age 50 and older with information and strategies to eat more nutritiously and be more physically active so they can reduce their risk of developing chronic diseases.
