Currently providing support and resources to caregivers in eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa

Tools for Caregivers operates a nationally known, evidence-based program named Powerful Tools for Caregivers.

Most people don’t plan to become caregivers for another person in their life; however, many find themselves in a caregiving situation as a result of either an acute incident, disability, or a chronic illness. Whether providing care at home or having responsibility for a neighbor or for someone in a care facility, down the block or miles away, caregivers face many challenges – physical and emotional – and place their own health at risk.

Unlike many respite programs which provide paid and volunteer individuals to give relief to caregivers for a certain period of time, Powerful Tools for Caregivers is devoted to teaching a caregiver the art of self-care. During a six-week course, caregivers discover how to thrive as individuals while managing caregiving responsibilities.

In Nebraska and southwest Iowa, Tools for Caregivers is a network operating under the umbrella of Executive Services Corps-Nebraska, Inc., a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization whose mission is simply to “Help Others.”
