6 Thursdays | June 15, 22, 29; July 6, 13, 20 | Jewish Family & Children’s Services | 600 5th Avenue San Rafael CA | 1:30pm to 3:30pm | FREE
This six-week program is about the what and how of caregiving. It is built around two ideas:
1. You probably never expected to be a caregiver.
2. And…you never trained for the role.
Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease is a specialty requiring specific skills and an attitude that contributes to the well being of both the caregiver and the person with the disease. This program, co-sponsored by Seniors At Home, a division of Jewish Family & Children’s Services, enables caregivers to develop a sense of control and mastery within the caregiving role.
Based on research by experts in caregiving techniques, this 6-week course will provide clinical-level training for family caregivers. Participants will graduate with personal knowledge and skills to assess abilities of their loved one with dementia; confidence to set and alter caregiving goals; strategies to manage activities of daily living; and perspective on the course of Alzheimer’s and related disorders.
NOTE: Registration is necessary and attendance at all sessions is required.
