Caregiver Training

Workshops: Caregiving Essentials for Family Caregivers

If you are a family caregiver, there is no charge to attend these monthly workshops.

The demands of caring for a loved one can be stressful, and it is difficult to provide care when you are unsure of what you are doing. You’ll feel better when you are confident of your skills and we can help! Workshops are available every month. This training is for unpaid family caregivers who are caring for someone age 60 or older or someone who has Alzheimer’s or a related dementia of any age.
