ELIZABETHTOWN — A caregiver training, which will be open to the public and free of charge, will be held in the Elizabethtown Community Hospital’s conference room on Feb. 7, at 6 p.m. This is not a support group but a general training for caregivers covering: General Caregiver Insight, Mouth Care, Skin Care, Bathing, Making An Occupied Bed, Positioning In Bed, Preventing Infections, and Medication Management. This presentation will address important tips and techniques which caregivers need to know to better care for their loved one. The presentation will be beneficial for most caregiver situations and we encourage you to attend.
This event is presented by High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care, a not for profit healthcare agency, which provides holistic, patient and family driven end of life care throughout the Adirondack North Country, most often in the home where individuals feel most comfortable.
