“For the first time since I started caring for my (chronically-ill) husband, I feel optimistic.
The Dale Association’s Powerful Tools for Caregivers course facilitators helped me learn how to create more balance in my life, and to be more effective in this challenging role. It was so comforting to know that other people were in a similar situation. I can’t change Dan’s Parkinson’s disease, but I feel like everything really will be okay.”
