Teaching Care Giving Skills to Care Givers
Yes, we are the only PCW class in the area that follows all three Medicaid, Department of Public Health and teaching requirements for a PCW class. If you take a class that's less than 22 hours long they are not doing that. For us its not just about getting a job but knowing what it takes to KEEP it.
Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are necessary daily activities such as showering, brushing teeth, walking, dressing, grooming and eating/drinking. As chronic illnesses progress we begin to loss the ability to do ADLs on our own. This class teaches participants how to help others do all the ADLs. Participants who have learned to assist with ADLs have learned “skills” that they use to help people that can’t do them for themselves.
Class participants receive the 121 page handbook, specifically developed for this class, and handouts showing how the skills are done to assist in repeating them. In class, we do many of the skills several times to assist in remembering how to help a person with them.
