Description

Caregiver Skills Training Workshops are for family caregivers to learn practical skills and receive hands-on training. Guided by health care professionals, caregivers learn how to provide everyday care for their loved ones with dementia or other chronic conditions.

This five-hour training is designed to be flexible and interactive so that caregivers get their questions addressed. Participants can choose to attend the entire program from 10am-3:30pm or choose to attend only the topics that are of interest. Parking and a light lunch will be provided.

This workshop will cover the following topics:

Core Topics (covered every month)

  • Nursing care
  • Transfer and fall prevention
  • Nutrition management
  • Speech and communication

Possible Electives Covered (choose 2)

  • The Virtual Dementia Tour (offered monthly)
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Audiology
  • Bowel/Bladder

**Please note that the Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT) is offered monthly during the Skills Workshop or as a separate program called Virtual Dementia Tour Only. VDT availability during the workshop is based on the order in which you sign-up. If you are unable to attend during the Skills Workshop you can sign-up for another date under the VDT Only option.**
