Caring for a parent, child, or close friend with a significant disability or illness is a challenge many of us will face someday. But our willingness to help does not always mean we have all the right tools or information to do this hard work.
The “Yes I Can!” series, sponsored by the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation, helps caregivers build the skills they need to care for themselves and their loved ones. The seven-week series, which started March 19th, provides caregivers with fundamentals for self-care, communication, personal care and nutrition, community resources, body mechanics and falls prevention, end of life care, and legal and financial issues. By the end of the course participants will be confident, empowered caregivers.
There is still room available in the class and six more weeks of tools, resources, and support for family caregivers.
