FREE “Powerful Tools for Caregivers” Click HERE to learn more and register.

  • This training gives caregivers specific tools they can use to make sure their caregiver duties don’t crowd out all of the other important relationships and activities in their lives.
  • Tools that help them access additional resources, handle difficult family communications, find space in their lives for activities beyond caregiving and help them make better decisions about care.
  • In her book, Passages In Caregiving, noted author Gail Sheehy wrote:  “I cannot recommend highly enough the ‘Powerful Tools for Caregivers’ training program.”
  • FREE respite care is provided for all course sessions.  Classes are usually held once per week, for six weeks.

FREE Individual Counseling

  • Feeling overwhelmed?  Need someone to talk to who understands the challenges you’re facing everyday.
  • Qualifying family caregivers can receive three free one-on-one counseling services with Amber Wolf, an experienced Mental Health Counselor Associate with a Masters in Counseling Psychology degree.
  • Available, with an appointment, in person at Bellevue and Des Moines Centers or via telephone in Bainbridge Island.
  • Sessions may also be purchased for $25/hour (for qualifying caregivers).

FREE Respite Care

  • Called “Destinations,” this program—which would normally cost $60—provides three free hours of respite care to family caregivers one Saturday/month.   The family caregivers get a needed break while the “Destinations” participants enjoy three hours of travel-related activities.
