It’s not easy to understand what it’s like to receive care until you’re in the position to take it. What may feel like “perfectly fine” and professional care to you may feel different when the perspectives or roles are reversed. People under care can sometimes feel embarrassed or frustrated, and it’s not always easy to see why if you’ve never been in that situation before or wish to have more independence.
Consider going to the bathroom versus helping your client to the bathroom. You might be perfectly fine helping someone else, but you may find you have reservations when it’s your turn. After all, many people would prefer to handle private matters like that independently.
For all of these reasons, our caregiver training provides the opportunity for potential caregivers to experience care from a unique perspective一the one receiving care! As a member of our training, you will learn how to give care and receive care from a caretaker.

In addition to basic needs, a caregiver must be prepared to address the following concerns:
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it should give you a general sense of how much will be taken on by a caretaker. Your job is to maintain your client or loved one’s quality of life as well as possible.
Aging In Place
Aging in Place is a term that refers to any individual choosing to remain at home while they age. This may sound self-explanatory, but choosing whether or not to age in place takes careful consideration and planning. Caregivers for the elderly must be thoroughly trained to ensure proper care.
Caregivers can range from professionals to other loved ones. We offer caregiver training for a variety of caregiving situations. If you have a client in our center, we will provide you with free training for family members to ensure you can give your loved ones the care they deserve.
