PLANO (March 18, 2016) — CareBuilders At Home Plano-Frisco this week is introducing a Family Learning Center® on its website, CareBuildersAtHomePlano.com, making it easier for family caregivers to find training and support resources to help them better care for the needs of their loved ones at home.
The Family Learning Center is free for family caregivers who provide home care for friends or loved ones who are homebound, suffer from a debilitating disease or who are simply aging and need companion care. The site includes over 50 training topics created just for family caregivers that cover everything from basic caregiver training, to transitioning of care, to Alzheimer’s disease and memory care.
“Our Family Learning Center courses focus on multi-generational family caregiving and are designed to be immediately available to families who need help, but don’t always know where to turn for information or support,” said Denise Karas, Executive Director. “We wanted to make it easy for family caregivers to always have a caregiving resource to turn to whenever they need it. The Family Learning Center is that resource and it is available online 24/7, simply by logging on to our website.”
Family caregivers need only visit CareBuildersAtHomePlano.com and register with their name and email address. Once registered, caregivers are provided a list of courses that will take them step-by-step through a specific topic with engaging and interactive video. The courses are narrated, but can also be read onscreen, allowing caregivers to learn through the method most comfortable to them. In addition to courses, the Family Learning Center provides a selection of videos and tip sheets that focus on relevant and timely topic for the family caregiver.
“There aren’t a lot of resources available to family caregivers to make their challenges easier, Karas said. “The new Family Learning Center is one way we can help. We hope it answers a lot of questions, gives them some much-needed training and support and allows caregivers to keep their loved ones more comfortable and remaining at home.”
