Caring for You, Caring for Me Workshop
Caring for You, Caring for Me (CFYCFM) provides education and support to caregivers through a series of flexible learning modules, helping caregivers take better care of themselves, collaborate effectively with professional caregivers, and be the best advocate possible for their care recipient.
This five-part, interactive training course has been designed to help family caregivers develop skills that most benefit them, including building relationships with professional caregivers to increase cooperation, understanding and support. CFYCFM provides opportunities for learning ways to cope with the stressors of being a caregiver, accessing resources, discovering ways to work together with others to reduce frustrations and barriers in the caregiver role, sharing common concerns, and recognizing that caregivers are not alone.
This event is a partnership with Elderlink - Fairfax Area Agency on Aging. CFYCFM is a free signature program of the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving.
In-home respite services may be available on a sliding fee scale for caregivers who would like to participate but are unable to make arrangements for their loved one. Three weeks advanced notice requested if respite services are being requested. Please note respite services would be provided in-home and the workshop is held in person at Insight - Fairfax.
