Education

Seminars, workshops, and conferences that address the health, legal, and emotional needs of caregivers are offered. There may be a recommended donation for these events, but no one is ever turned away due to inability to contribute! Our evidence-based and popular Powerful Tools for Caregivers is offered throughout the county in both English and Spanish.

Ongoing support counseling is available to CRC OC registered family caregivers to address caregiving related concerns. Referrals to professionals are available to address other counseling needs.

Monthly workshops facilitated by elder law attorneys are provided at various locations throughout the area to educate caregivers regarding Medi-Cal planning for long-term care. Other topics include durable powers of attorney, probate vs. a living will or trust, etc. Please check on our Fact Sheets page for fact sheets regarding some of these issues.
