Riverside County Office on Aging offering caregiver classes
Special to the Times


BLYTHE - Riverside County Office on Aging recognizes that there are more family caregivers now than ever, and is offering education for them.

More than 65 million people, 29 percent of the U.S. population, provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or elderly family member or friend during any given year and spend an average of 20 hours per week providing care.

The next series of free Care Pathways classes begin in January 2013 in key locations throughout Riverside County. Available classes include day and evening and Spanish speaking classes. This program provides a series of weekly workshops designed to offer information and support to unpaid family caregivers who face challenges managing their caregiving responsibilities for a friend or loved one, age 60 or older.

This series of 12 workshops will cover subjects such as: Living with Dementia; Preventing Caregiver Burnout; Managing Medications; Talking to the Doctor; Understanding Legal Issues; Stress Prevention Relief; Communicating in Challenging Situations, and more.

The workshops are conducted in a supportive setting, with facilitators who understand the challenges that caregivers face, and who can provide powerful tools to assist caregivers to manage their tasks with confidence, increase their self- care, and thrive.

Registration is required. Call 951-867-3800 or 800-510-2020. Home care can be arranged for the care recipient; request respite assistance at the time of registration.

The Riverside County Office on Aging, serving as the Aging and Disability Resource Connection, received Prevention and Early Intervention funding through Riverside County Department of Mental Health/Mental Health Service Act, for these caregiver support groups in the Western and Mid-County Regions of Riverside County.
