Elder care classes are being held April 6–25

Are you caring for an older adult? Are you interested in becoming an in-home care provider? Now you can learn the essential skills of caregiving.

The Area 1 Agency on Aging is offering the Personal Care Attendant Training in Crescent City beginning April 6. The training consists of video, discussion, and hands-on skills training and is taught by Maren Rose and Victoria Onstine.

Some of the topics covered include Caring for People with Specific Diseases and Conditions, Communicating Effectively, Infection Control, Skin and Wound Care, Fall Prevention, Nutrition, Assisting with Medications, and Caring for Someone on Bedrest, Reducing Caregiver Stress and Community Resources.

Individuals who are currently providing non-paid care for a friend or family member may be eligible to have the $20 registration fee waived and are welcome to attend any or all of the sessions.

Individuals who are interested in becoming paid in-home care providers may be eligible for placement on the caregiver registry for referrals to potential in-home employers upon successful completion of all requirements.

Sessions run April 6–25 on Thursday evenings from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
