College of the Canyons to Host Series of Free Family Caregiver Workshops

College of the Canyons, in partnership with the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center, will host a free “Family Caregivers Essentials” workshop on Saturday, Jan. 27 at the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center.

The first in an ongoing series of workshops scheduled for 2018, the event is designed to offer assistance to current and potential family caregivers by focusing on post-caregiving reintegration for senior caregivers after suffering the loss of their loved ones.

“The workshop will offer different perspectives from those who have made this transition successfully and provide participants with resources they may need to assist in this transition,” said Paul Wickline, dean of the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the college. “We hope this series of workshops continues to empower and educate community members who are caring for elderly loved ones.”

The workshop will also feature representatives from Volunteer Services at Henry Mayo, Hands on SCV, the Volunteer Bureau at College of the Canyons, and the SCV Senior Center to provide information and answer questions.

For more information about the January 27 workshop or to pre-register, please visit the event's web page or call (661) 362-3118.

Additional family caregiving workshops will be held throughout the spring semester from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on the last Saturday of each month through May 26. For a full listing of dates and topics, visit the workshop web page or contact (661) 362-3152.
