The College of Interdisciplinary Studies offers a variety of courses in caregiving. The courses are 7 weeks long one night a week at CHEC. Please encourage students with an interest in Caregiving to register. The courses can be excellent electives for Nursing, Sociology, Psychology, Human Ecology, Interdisciplinary Studies, Exercise Science, and many others. The courses are available for working professionals through CEUs and Professional Development Credit with potential funding from Workforce Development.

Complete training to become a better, more effective caregiver or respite care provider.

More than 65 million people, 29% of the U.S. population, provide care for a chronically ill, disabled, or aged family member or friend during any given year and spend an average of 20 hours per week providing care for their loved one. Unfortunately, most of those providing care have no professional training or guidance in the area of caregiving. Nearly three quarters of family caregivers report not going to the doctor as often as they should and 55% say they skip doctor appointments altogether. 58% indicate they do not take care of themselves as well as they did before becoming caregivers.

The courses will be foundational components of a soon to be created Caregiving emphasis area. The courses will cover issues related to care, safety, nutrition, insurance, legal, finances, respite, stress, resource availability, and other important caregiving concepts.
