Do You Need Caregiver Confidence?

Workshops to help family caregivers navigate

 

Caring for a loved one can be overwhelming. Let Trellis Supportive Care’s Caregiver Confidence program help provide tools, resources, and training to be more confident as a caregiver.

Caregiver Confidence is offered on two separate dates, covering a wide variety of topics. Part 1 (Tips and Tricks) is designed for caregivers in the beginning stages. Part 2 (Skills and Drills) covers caring for a loved one with more advanced care needs. Attend one or both sessions. The sessions are 9:00am - 12:00pm.
