Practical Caregiver Training — Carleton Place

October 11, 2023
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
28 Hawthorne Avenue
Carleton Place, ON K7C 3A9

This course provides practical knowledge and advice for anyone who is a non-paid caregiver for someone with a life-limiting illness.

Caregiving roles range from provision of assistance for personal care, access to meals and food, transportation to appointments, shopping, and social events, financial management and support, medical care, and many other home maintenance and activities of daily living.

Home Hospice North Lanark (HHNL) knows how hard it can be, and that caregiver burnout is a very real thing. As a response to the needs of unpaid caregivers in this area, HHNL is offering its fourth Practical Caregiving Training course developed by Champlain Hospice Palliative Care in Almonte this spring.

Topics covered during the five FREE 2-hour information sessions are:
October 11 – Your Role as a Caregiver (Navigation, Advance Care Planning)
October 18 – Lifts and Transfers (Body mechanics, lifting techniques)
October 25 – Providing Personal Care (All things hygiene, grief, dignity)
November 1 – End of Life Care (What to expect at the end of life)
November 8 – Communication and Self Care

Please bring your own mask and drinks.

Registration Required. Contact Jan Watson at chair@hhnl.ca or 613-791-7167
