Classes for Family Caregivers

Helping Caregivers Learn and Cope


Important update regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

We have canceled our Caregiver Education classes and workshops during the Covid-19 crisis. We are looking forward to rescheduling our classes when that once again becomes possible. For more information on AAA 1-B’s coronavirus response and resources and information to help older adults and family caregivers, visit our coronavirus updates page.


Our classes and workshops help family caregivers in southeast Michigan and metro Detroit take care of themselves while caring for an aging or disabled relative or friend. They can help you whether you are caring for a parent, spouse, friend or relative. It doesn’t matter what your situation is—whether you are caring for someone who lives with you, lives in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, or you’re a long-distance caregiver. Our classes and workshops are free and being held in neighborhoods across our six-county region. Advance registration is required. Call (833) 262-2200 or contact us by email to sign up or find a class near you.

 


Powerful Tools

Classes meet once a week for 6 weeks. Each class is an hour and 30 minutes long. Classes are small—with only 8 to 12 people. Going through the class together as a small group helps class members get to know each other and learn from each other.

You’ll Learn:

You’ll walk out with a set of practical tools that you can start using right away. You’ll learn how to:

  • Reduce stress and take care of yourself
  • Communicate your feelings, needs and concerns
  • Get through challenging situations
  • Make tough decisions

Some topics covered include:

  • Hiring in-home help
  • Helping memory-impaired loved ones
  • Making legal and financial decisions
  • Making decisions about placing loved ones in a care facility
  • Understanding depression
