Caregiving courses for family members
As a matter of course, many family members take on the task of caring for relatives at home for as long as possible. A variety of courses are offered to assist and support these family caregivers. In caregiving courses, trained personnel provide practical guidance, tips, and tricks for everyday life, and a wealth of general information. The courses can help improve the quality and safety of day-to-day caregiving, thus also benefiting care receivers. Moreover, course participants can, for example, learn to better cope with psychological and physical strain, share experiences with other caregivers, and seek advice on suitable resources. The courses are generally free of charge.
