Comforting Arms Caregiving Academy-Educating Your Loved Ones

May 30, 2018

CA-Logo_No-TaglineIt is estimated that up to sixty-five million people are unpaid caregivers and spend an average of 20.4 hours per week providing care. They struggle to cope with the exhaustion, loneliness, mental and physical demands, and impact on their jobs. They need help desperately!

Recognizing the need to educate the family caregiver, Comforting Arms developed the Family Caregiving Seminar series as part of the Caregiving Academy. The seminar provides a one-of-a-kind hands-on training class for family members caring for a loved one at home.  “For the first time, family members can learn how to provide personal hygiene, maintain proper cleanliness, take vital signs and so much more”, reports Phil Graiser President of Comforting Arms.  In addition, the participant will learn about feeding and special diets, managing medications, handling stress and other caregiving topics. Unless you are a paid professional caregiver, you may not know how to care for someone at home.  Comforting Arms has setup a training lab where you will be able to practice proper techniques for personal care.

“Elder care has become the top problem in our society today as it replaces child care as the number one issue for the men and women in today’s work force.” Graiser said. “Already, people are spending more time in the care of their elderly parents than they did caring for their own children.  The problem will only magnify with the aging of the population.”

The mission of Comforting Arms is to have clients and their families fall in love with the future.
