“With vasular dementia causing my mom to continually decline and change behaviors, these classes equip me and educate me to adjust to those behavior changes so I can relate to my mom in a loving and way and give her a good quality of life and also less stress on me.”

- Family caregiver, Navigating Challenging Behaviors, Medford

“I personally enjoy and have a good time taking these classes online because I can concentrate more on the information given to me than being kind of rushed in a classroom, because this way I can take my time really understating each module individually. Thank you very much for offering such great classes. I hope you continue offering them online, because sometimes I may not be able to attend a class in person, therefore this way is an excellent tool to get my credits at any time! I appreciate it greatly.”

“Good job. Most caregivers working for providers are minimum wage, and can’t afford classes. This option is critical to remaining employed for many statewide.”
