The Best Times Digital Edition

April 27, 2021

In 2021, the Johnson County Area Agency on Aging offers a personalized innovative eLearning program for family caregivers of loved ones with dementia – part of a national program created by Trualta.

Skill-based training is delivered through an online learning system built specifically for the family caregiver audience. Caregivers also receive printed booklets to accompany the online information.

Topics include:

  • Personal care (e.g., tips for showering, toileting).
  • Dementia care (managing difficult situations like wandering, agitation, apathy).
  • Safety and injury prevention (identifying fall risks, safely moving and transferring).
  • Caregiver wellness (e.g., balancing work and caregiving).
  • Insights from dementia expert Teepa Snow.

To participate, call 913-715-8861.
