Alliance Visiting Nurses Association & Hospice Presenting Free Caregiver Program
We are often thrust into the role of caregiving with little or no training or preparation. The Caregiving Puzzle: Putting the Pieces Together Program is designed to fill that need.
Alliance Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice will be presenting a free, three-session caregiving program at Alliance Community Hospital in Conference Room 1-A on Wednesday, May 4, May 11 and May 18 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Information on the need to care for oneself in order to care for someone else, suggestions on “reframing” the caregiving experience to find the positives, and actual physical care such as moving a person from the bed to the wheelchair or how to help someone who has fallen on the floor, are some of the areas to be included.
The group will explore some of the difficult decisions concerning appropriate medical care at end-of-life so that families are better prepared when they are called upon to make their own difficult decisions.
Pre-registration is encouraged by calling the Hospice Office at 330-821-7055, extension 2.
