NDSU Offers Course to Help Caregivers

The physical, mental and emotional effects of caregiving will be explored through the Powerful Tools for Caregivers six-week course starting Jan. 13 and ending Feb. 17 at First Lutheran Church in Fargo. Each session runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

“Caregiving is rewarding, but it also can be stressful physically, emotionally and financially,” says Rita Ussatis, North Dakota State University Extension Service agent. “This course is designed to provide caregivers the skills needed to take care of themselves.”

Through the Powerful Tools for Caregivers course, participants will learn about:

  • Reducing stress
  • Improving self-confidence
  • Balancing their lives
  • Doing better at communicating feelings
  • Increasing their ability to make tough decisions
  • Locating helpful resources

The classes will be taught by certified and experienced instructors.

The registration fee is $50, which includes “The Caregiver Helpbook.” For more information or to register, contact Ussatis at (701) 241-5700 or

The course is sponsored by the NDSU Extension Service and Sanford Health Foundation.
