Caregiver Basic Skills, Part 2 is a free training designed for family & friends who are caring for an elder with memory/cognitive issues presented by Rosemary Nevala, RN, from Marshall Healthcare Facility and Pamela Grant, CNA, from Down East Community Hospital. Part 1 of this training series dealt with physical care of frail and/or elders with memory/cognitive challenges and was hands-on. Part 2 will focus on responding as a caregiver: communication styles, dealing with caregiver stress, dietary tips to help with meal times, and awareness of when medical intervention might be necessary. All topics in this training were requested by caregivers. Participants do NOT need to have attended part 1 in this series. This training will be held in the large conference room of Sunrise County Economic Council’s office building at 7 Ames Way, Machias. Space is limited to 20.
