Caregiver Training

For those of you who might be dealing with this issue right now or know someone who is, I’d like to post a few links to help people who choose to take care of an elderly family member in the home.

The first is a 33-part series of YouTube videos from UCLA which help give practical training to a home caregiver to someone with Alzheimers and Dementia. I’m posting the first one here.

This series of videos is from Senior Helpers, an in-home care company. I’m not advocating on their behalf but they put out a great 4-part series for home caregivers dealing with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
