Online — For many caregivers, caregiving itself is a new role — one for which training is needed, just like any new job. Healthy Living for ME™ is offering a free, 6-week interactive workshop for caregivers to come together, learn and receive support from others going through similar caregiving experiences. Class will begin Monday, July 26 at 1 p.m. and meet weekly through Aug. 30.
The Building Better Caregivers Program was designed for caregivers of all types better understand and navigate the changes their care partners are experiencing. This programs helps caregivers who are assisting loved ones through memory loss or dementia, as well as those providing care to individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Participants of the workshop will learn how to identify and manage care partners’ behaviors and triggers. Additional topics include managing caregiver stress, making decisions, planning for the future, communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals, legal issues related to caregiving, hiring help, and much more.
This workshop is free and open to the public but registration is required. Call us at 1-800-620-6036 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register.
