In life, we have those people around us that provide support without being paid to do so; sometimes they are referred to as “natural supports”. The more obvious unpaid caregivers include parents, grandparents, and family members. The less obvious include family friends, neighbors, church and social group members, and even co-workers.
When it comes to those with disabilities, unpaid caregivers often bear the responsibility of not only ensuring the safety of these individuals, but also fostering growth and assisting them to live their best, most independent life. Overwhelming? Yes! Can it be accomplished? Absolutely!
At Forward, we provide unique training for the trainer. We have a distinct approach of knowing how to train you and other caregivers virtually to make the process as easy for you as possible. Through a tailored and systematic approach, we guide unpaid caregivers through various topics and teach them how to walk through disability support and caregiving with confidence.
Topics may include (but are definitely not limited to!):
And the list goes on and on…
With Forward Integrated Services, you tell us what would be most helpful to learn and we’ll go from there. Regardless of the topic, there is a great sense of empowerment that accompanies the phrase, “I got this!”
We would be honored to have the opportunity to help get you there – one skill at a time!
