Respite is short-term relief that allows caregivers to attend to matters other than caring for their loved ones. This FREE training will help friends, family members, neighbors, volunteers, and faith community members feel empowered and prepared to offer their assistance by visiting with an older adult with memory loss in his or her home.

All Companions will be trained using REST© (Respite Education & Support Tools), an evidence-supported program that provides individuals with the education and tools they need to be confident companions. Lunch provided.

Registration required by November 15.

To register or for more information, contact Jeanne Schuller at (651) 632-5320 or jschuller@lyngblomsten.org.
