Creating Confident Caregivers
Thursdays, January 24 – February 28, 12:00-2:00pm, Trailside Center, 4700 Dublin Ave in Midland
Taking care of someone with dementia is specialized work. For most family caregivers, caregiving itself is a new role, one for which training is needed, just as you would receive training for any new job. The Creating Confident Caregivers program (CCC) helps family carers better understand the changes their loved ones are experiencing and how to best provide individualized care for their person throughout the progression of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. CCC is an outstanding evidence-based program that can help you gain the knowledge, skills, and frame of mind necessary to navigate your caregiving role. During the 6-week series of classes, learn how to adopt a strategic outlook on the care you provide so your loved one can remain more contentedly involved in their daily life, while also putting yourself back on your priority list. There is a $25 suggested donation. Creating Confident Caregivers is supported by funds from the Older Americans Act. Space is limited, so call early to reserve a spot at 633-3700.
