A Virtual Class for Family Caregivers

Frederick County Senior Services Division will host six virtual classes to give caregivers an opportunity to learn news ways to provide care for themselves and their loved ones. Sessions will be held online weekly on Mondays, beginning October 12, 2020 through November 16, 2020, from 2-4 p.m.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an evidence-based educational program. Whether you are helping a parent, spouse, or friend, and regardless of where they live – at home, nursing home or across the country- you will benefit from this class. This program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, better communicate feelings, create balance in their lives and helps improve their ability to make tough decisions, and locate helpful resources. Interactive lessons, discussions and brainstorming will help caregivers take the “tools” they choose and put them into action in their lives.

Presenters for this event are Mindy Lohman-Hinz and Mary Collins, Caregiver Program Coordinators for the Frederick County Senior Services Division.

This program is free and each participant will receive a book, The Caregiver Helpbook, developed specifically for the class. The book, along with an information packet and class summaries will be delivered to each participant prior to the start of class. Registration is required and the deadline to register is, October 5. Space is limited to 12 participants max and is first come, first serve, so register ASAP.To register, please call 301-600-6001 or email For more information please visit:

Cindy A. Rose began writing for the Tentacle in 2011 trying to raise awareness over things happening within Frederick County Public Schools. She began keeping a close watch on FCPS when she learned there were not enough air conditioned buses for special needs children during the hot Maryland summers. The Tentacle offered her a place to share her concerns with her community when local newspapers didn’t always. Cindy had the opportunity to buy the Tentacle from creator/owner John W. Ashbury in 2019, so she did. She believed then, as she believes now, our communities, friends and neighbors have important things to say that needs to be shared with those living around them. Large corporate news companies don’t always share in those passions and concerns. The Tentacle is a local news, commentary and community website run by citizens, for citizens. Its success depends on your participation.
