Class Description

Being a caregiver is tough work — whether part-time or full-time.  If you are a family member, paid companion, or someone who seeks to support a caregiver, this course gives you the tools and support you need to maintain your own physical, emotional, and spiritual health as you care for others.

In caregiving, as in all marathons, respect is not always earned by the “fastest” or “best,” but by the one who endures and triumphs in the long run. This training supports caregivers and those supporting them so they can finish the run with love and grace. In this course, caregivers & supporters will learn how to build their physical and emotional stamina, how to handle their charge’s changing emotional and physical health, and learn how to develop a support team of professionals, family, and friends. We’ll also read Biblical passages that will encourage and strengthen you and make laughter a priority to lighten your day and speed you on your way.

Even if you are not a caregiver yourself, but are wondering how to minister to caregivers in your family or church fellowship, this course can help.  We’ll mention ways in which family, friends, and professionals can assist caregivers, especially those caregivers taking the course. While most of the material is aimed at caregivers themselves, anyone seeking to have a better understanding of what the job of a caregiver is like will benefit from this course.

Join us for this interactive overview of the most current research and literature written specifically for today’s caregivers. Come be supported and encouraged by others who by God’s grace and love have made it through the caregiving marathon!

This course is eligible for 2.0 CEUs.
