Free Caregiver Training in our Family Learning Center

Free Caregiver Training in our Family Learning Center 

Evergreen Home Companion offers this valuable information resource and learning opportunity as a free service to the community. It is similar to some of training we provide to our caregivers, and is our way of helping to ensure that those in need are getting the best help possible when we’re not in the home.

The caregiver training in the “Family Learning Center,” is a series of professionally designed online courses to teach interested individuals about critical factors in providing care for elderly loved ones. You now have access 24/7 with the Family Learning Center.  Similar online courses charge hundreds of dollars for enrollment, but we offer this free of charge. All we ask in return is that you keep us in mind when respite or a higher level or frequency of care is needed.
