Aging Institute - Education and Training Resources for Caregivers

UPMC Content 3
"There are only four kinds of people in this world. Those who have been caregivers, those who currently are caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers."
— Rosalyn Carter

Family members and friends who help older adults may not consider themselves caregivers.

You should consider yourself to be a caregiver if you provide regular assistance with:

  • Household chores
  • Errands
  • Personal care
  • Transportation
  • Finances

For caregivers, particularly those providing personal care to older adults on a daily basis, education and training in aging issues is invaluable.

Our programs provide caregivers with the knowledge and insight needed to:

  • Reduce stress
  • Communicate more effectively with family and healthcare providers
  • Deal with difficult feelings
  • Make tough decisions
  • Solve problems

Our educational classes and presentations also offer opportunities to network with other caregivers who can share resources and provide support.

We offer a variety of training and education opportunities for caregivers, including:
