Caregiver Education Classes Offered in Kona
The Hawai‘i Community Caregiver Network will partner with the University of Hawai‘i Mānoa Cooperative Extension to offer a two-day “train the trainer” intensive on June 16 and 17 from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Regency at Hualalai in Kailua Kona.
This class will certify participants to co-lead local Powerful Tools for Caregivers classes, which have been offered in West Hawai‘i for almost two years.
PTC, a free six-week series of two-hour classes, is designed to give family caregivers the tools they need to take better care of themselves.
The training will be led by three certified master trainers—Judy Bell and Ralph Harrison of Kona, both of whom have been family caregivers themselves; and Heather Greenwood of UH Mānoa, Maui Office, Aging & Intergenerational Programs. Greenwood has worked with the PTC program since it came to Hawai‘i in 2009.
Lunch and snacks will be provided.
To register for the training, call Ralph Harrison at (808) 464-2476.
