PARTICIPANT FEEDBACK


This course was a lifesaver for me and I know it has also made a difference in others’ caregiving roles. Real life needs exist for caregivers and this workshop is a very effective antidote.
After taking this class I am a more confident caregiver! Having tools to resolve problems is a definite advantage in becoming a better caregiver and a happier, wiser, and healthier me… and a healthier us!
