We're pleased to offer an abbreviated version of CAREGIVING 101 online, but there is no substitute for teaching caregivers face-to-face. Caregivers need an opportunity to ask local experts about the daily challenges they are facing. Caregivers need to learn about local services that will help them support their loved ones. And it's important for caregivers to meet their neighbors — ordinary people like themselves — who are facing the same challenges. We have no doubt that a local training program is the best way to support caregivers.
Would you like to offer a caregiver training program in your community? We want to share what we have learned so that you don't have to reinvent the wheel. As partners, we can create a valuable resource in your community. Together, we can begin to build a national caregiver training movement.
We offer three service options for organizations interested in creating a local CAREGIVING 101 program.
Includes direct on-site supervision of your first caregiver training by our Founder / Clinical Director Celi Adams, RN, ONC. Also includes telephone consultations on major development tasks, including: staff recruitment, site selection, publicity, funding, and faculty recruitment and coaching, and funding. Duplicating masters of all program development and training materials (described below) are included in this package.

A guide on how to build a CAREGIVING 101 training program in your own community. In it, we convey what we have learned “in the trenches” delivering our San Francisco Bay Area program for 14 years. Special attention is given to running a program on a limited budget. Topics include how to: recruit a training program director, enlist volunteer faculty members, secure free training sites, promote local trainings, document and report services and successes, create a community resource guide, and secure financial support to develop and sustain your program.
Includes an overview of CCT's guiding principles, strategies and techniques. Details the 18-hour CAREGIVING 101 curriculum — broken down into individual classes. Includes goals for each class, instructor profiles (what training/experience each teacher will need to succeed), lecture outlines (specific topics with approximate times assigned to each), and a training materials checklist (overheads, props, equipment)
A detailed reference manual that reinforces and supplements CAREGIVING 101 classes. It ensures that students will have useful information at their fingertips, when a specific caregiving need arises
