Sharing & Caring for Seniors
Important issues facing seniors, their families & the professionals working with them.
 Caregiving classes started on January 6, 2014. Great students have already registered and are ready to build a career for "at home" folks who are happy "staying home".  Care-Ed Learning can make that happen for you. Join our instructors as they plan your future together with you!

Jean Mowatt has just been appointed chair of the Education Committee for the NBHSA, New Brunswick Home Support Association. Jean is well suited to chair this committee - she has a strong background in education and has been creating curriculum and training caregivers since 1989. We'll be keeping you up-to-date on important information coming from the education committee as it relates to helping seniors stay at home.

As always, if you have any questions about our foot care management trainingcaregiver training programs or our homecare services, give us a call.

Sharing & Caring,

Reaching Out...
By Sharon A. O'Brien, SC; RN, PG; BSW, RSW; CG
Executive Vice-President of Policy & Education

Studies show that positive relationships can extend our lives, reduce blood pressure, reduce frequency of migraine headaches, speed up recovery from a stroke and relieve the chronic pain of arthritis.

Who is there for you - no matter what? Who loves you unconditionally, under all circumstances? Who wonders where you are if unable to reach you by phone for an extended period?
