This six-week education program is exclusively for family and friends caring for older adults with long-term conditions. Each weekly class provides family caregivers with the skills and confidence to better care for themselves while caring for others. Many caregivers have raved about the class, including those caring for a spouse or partner as well as adult family members and friends caring for an elder. Class members will receive The Caregiver Helpbook, developed specifically for the class.
Participating caregivers report they:
- · Are better at caring for themselves
- · Have fewer feelings of anger, guilt and depression
- · Have increased confidence and ability to cope with the demands of caregiving
- · Take more advantage of community services
Skills learned build upon each other from week to week , plan to attend all six sessions.
