A two-hour class designed to save caregivers time, money and heartache.

1:00 – 1:30pm   Long Term Plans
The instructor will help you begin to imagine what the future holds for you and your care recipient and how best to prepare for it. We will discuss Advance Directives, long-term care insurance, and how to pay for nursing home care if needed.

1:30pm – 2:30pm    Practical Caregiving Skills
Learn how to safely assist, perform personal care, and improve mobility for your care recipient in this hands-on session. We also teach the basics of infection control and wound care.

2:30pm – 3:00pm    Being A Healthy Caregiver
In this introduction to self-care, we discuss nutrition, journaling, advocacy, music therapy, and practice a deep breathing and relaxation exercise to help you unwind and de-stress.

Family Caregiving is offered on the 2nd Friday of each month from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.
You are welcome to attend one, two, or all three sessions… whatever works for your schedule.
