Our family caregiver classes are offered in two free four-hour workshops, one on the physical skills of caring for an older adult and the other on caring for a person with Alzheimer’s/Dementia. The training combines content from a number of sources including standards and guidelines from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The goal of the family caregiver workshops is to introduce family caregivers to basic caregiving skills needed to provide quality care for an aging family member. Family Caregiver Workshops can be taught at churches and other locations for groups of 10 or more.
