Limited Capacity: 5 spots available
· Conducted by Barbara Scott, Social Worker, and the ERCV Volunteer Committee. We know that people with dementia are being cared for by family in their homes and that respite for the caregiver is essential for the caregiver’s health and well-being. Training will provide the volunteer with useful information for understanding the characteristics and types of dementia and for providing care and stimulation for the caregiver’s loved one. Volunteers will meet the caregiver and the family member before providing respite service.
· Completing a regular ERCV volunteer training is a prerequisite for the respite care training. This training can be provided for anyone interested, if you contact our office and make arrangements with us.
