Tools for Effective Caregiving
If you help care for an older adult, we offer a free class to help make your path a little smoother. This two-part class focuses both on the needs of caregivers and their loved ones. Classes provide hands-on opportunities to learn practical skills and help people cope with the challenges of elder care. It also connects caregivers with support groups and other community resources. (Note: This course is not for professional caregivers).
- Basic hands-on personal care skills
- Home safety (fall prevention, body mechanics)
- Managing caregiver stress (understanding and working with difficult emotions)
- Managing challenging behaviors
