Free classes offer help for nonpaid caregivers


Family members who are caring for loved ones are invited to attend a six-week class on how to deal with stress, prioritization, family communication and planning.

Participants must register for the free series that is Thursdays in Coeur d’Alene starting April 3. The classes are sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association and the Area Agency on Aging of North Idaho.

The series is designed for all non-paid caregivers, not just those helping family members who have dementia or Alzheimer’s.

To register, call the Alzheimer’s Association at (208) 666-2996. The classes are at the Area Agency on Aging of North Idaho, 2120 N. Lakewood Drive in Coeur d’Alene, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Classes start April 3 and go through May 8.
