Our Family Caregiver Education Series is available to any member of the community who is currently engaging as a caregiver to a loved one living with a terminal diagnosis or a disabling chronic condition, regardless of whether your loved one is a Hope Hospice patient.
The 12 interactive webinars cover a variety of topics and provide education, support, and resources relevant to family caregivers. Four of the webinars are dedicated to caring for a loved one who is living with dementia.
Webinars are offered to the community for free, though donations are greatly appreciated and help us offset the cost of running the program.
All interactive webinars are presented using the Zoom application. Participants will need the following equipment: Personal computer or tablet with Internet and speakers. If you have any questions or need further information about using Zoom, check out our Family Caregiver Education Series FAQ.
Classes are offered to the community for free, though donations are greatly appreciated and help us offset the cost of running the program. Donate here.
