Workshop for employees who are caregivers at home
"Prepare to Care: Essential Skills for Elder Caregiving," a two-session workshop for employees who are caregivers at home, is being offered through the Labor/Management Workplace Education program on Feb. 28 and March 7 from 10:30 to noon in 115 South College.
Many employees have two jobs: work at UMass Amherst and work as caregivers for family. Instructor Sue Pratt, director of the certified nursing assistant program at Greenfield Community College, who has been helping elders and families for over 30 years, will help participants identify issues around caregiving, self-care and accessing community resources and support.
