Caregiver Training Offered by American Red Cross

At you can read about a Family Caregiving Program offered by the American Red Cross that covers hands-on practical caregiving skills such as positioning people in bed, personal care, and providing healthy eating for someone who is elderly, has a chronic illness or is disabled.
The American Red Cross website says that 44 million American families are providing in-home care for a loved one.

A Family Caregiving Reference Guide is also available that covers hands-on practical basics such as assisting with bathing, positioning and helping someone to move, safety, and caring for the caregiver.

There is also a program for people who would like to become a Family Caregiving Leader or Provider.

You can contact your local chapter of the American Red Cross for more information, or go to the website and read about the training in detail.
