Family Caregiver Education Programs!

Professional healthcare workers and caregivers, like nurses, certified nursing assistants, social workers, etc; often times receive dementia training through their employer or as part of their annual certifications. But what about family caregivers? Where can they go to receive similar training on dementia basics, behaviors and safety issues?

Here! Okay, not here here – not on the blog – but here in Georgia! Throughout the year, the Alzheimer’s Association offers family caregivers training on a variety of topics, around the state. Caring for a loved one or family member is a much different experience than caring for someone as part of your career. Family care involves a whole different set of challenges for both the caregiver and care recipient involved.  We want to help prepare you for some of those challenges and we also hope that you’ll meet other caregivers with whom you can connect.

To see our list of upcoming classes and get information about registering, visit us on our website: http://alz.org/georgia/in_my_community_education.asp .

We're ready to field your questions at our next education class or program!
