This course, led by a registered nurse, teaches skills for caring for older adults and brings an opportunity to connect with other family caregivers. Topics covered include medication management, taking vital signs, wheelchair use, providing bathing and personal assistance, doing lifts and transfers safely (for both of you), and much more. Caregivers practice skills in class, learn from each other, and even have fun!

Up to $180 in reimbursement for respite care (substitute elder care during class periods) is available! Pre-registration required and available using the link below or by calling 303-678-6116.
