Petaluma, June 27, 2016: Sequoia Senior Solutions, Inc. the North Bay’s largest In-Home Care Provider, today announced the introduction of a new service aimed at providing professional-quality training in Home Care Assistance for family members of loved ones who are suffering from age-related disabilities.
Until now, families either hired a professional caregiver or struggled along on their own, not always having the skills or knowledge to take proper care of their loved one, especially one who had suffered a stroke or has developed diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or arthritis. The new service is designed to help family caregivers perform their labor of love with confidence and care.
The extensive training program that all Sequoia Senior Solutions’ caregivers go through is now available to family caregivers who have undertaken the job of caring for a loved one, and want to do the job well. In addition to classes on Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, diabetes, arthritis, and stroke, there is training on Bed Care and Body Mechanics and CPR/First Aid.
The classes are offered at the offices of Sequoia Senior Solutions in both Petaluma and Lakeport. For Bed Care training, clients have a choice of learning at their own home. They learn, among other things, how to make their loved one as comfortable as possible while maintaining their own safety, how to change a bed with someone in it, and how to provide proper incontinence care.
Classes start July 1, 2016 and continue through the month. A new series of classes begins each month, staffed by Sequoia Senior Solutions’ dedicated professionals and open to all. More information can be found by contacting Sequoia Senior Solutions through their website at SequoiaSeniorSolutions.com or by calling (707) 763-6600.
