Age Safe America LLC launches Family Caregiver ESSENTIALS, a free online course that aims to empower caregivers.

The course offers real-world advice for caregiving for aging parents or loved ones with short or long-term chronic illness. The information is presented by two professionals with personal experience and perspective on important topics that are essential tools in caregiving.

In addition, it provides individuals with actionable ways to fulfill their caregiver role more effectively. Individual modules address the entire spectrum of the caregiving experience and cover topics such as care advocacy, creating care teams, self-care, impacts on home and career life, as well as planning for the legal and financial implications of caregiving.

Each participant can choose to view all the modules or pick the most relevant topics to start. The program also includes a downloadable study guide and extensive references and resources. In addition, businesses, organizations and municipalities can contact Age Safe America to obtain a distribution license to offer the course to their clients or members, Age Safe America notes in a media release.

“Since the many challenges of caregiving accelerated in 2020, our Age Safe Services Registry has seen considerable growth. Currently we are working directly with those we have trained and certified along with leading industry associations and organizations with a professional ethics standard. This enhances our ability to help support older adults and their family members with a myriad of needs including matching them with a certified Senior Home Safety Specialist to perform a comprehensive home safety assessment, vetted professional remodelers, or local home care providers nationwide.”

— Steven Bailey, Managing Director of Age Safe America LLC
