College of the Canyons to Host Series of Free Family Caregiver Workshops
College of the Canyons, in partnership with the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center, will host a free “Family Caregivers Essentials” workshop on Saturday, Jan. 27 at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center.
The first in an ongoing series of workshops designed to offer assistance to current and potential family caregivers, the workshop will focus on post-caregiving reintegration for senior caregivers after suffering the loss of their loved ones. This workshop will focus on reintegration for the senior caregiver. As one deals with the loss of the person he or she has cared for, how does this individual transition back into life as a post-caregiver? The workshop will offer different perspectives from those who have made this transition successfully and provide participants with resources they may need to assist in this transition.
“The workshop will offer different perspectives from those who have made this transition successfully and provide participants with resources they may need to assist in this transition,” said Paul Wickline, dean of the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the college. “We hope this series of workshops continues to empower and educate community members who are caring for elderly loved ones.”
The workshop will also feature representatives from Volunteer Services at Henry Mayo, Hands on SCV, the Volunteer Bureau at College of the Canyons, and the SCV Senior Center to provide information and answer questions.
Family caregiving workshops will be held throughout the spring semester from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on the last Saturday of each month until May 26. For a full listing of dates and topics check back at scvcaregivers.eventbrite.com/ or contact (661) 362-3152. ... See MoreSee Less
