Educational experiences series to begin in January

After conducting a Community Focus Group in November 2012 with a follow up Community Action Group in early 2013, Elder Options’ Executive Director Carol S. Heape began working on developing a series of classes around the issues that came out of these two focus groups.

“Educational experiences,” Heape calls them as the classes will be developed to assist individuals and families in taking care of others and taking care of themselves.

“Lifelong learning is a term that is comfortable to me,” Heape said. “It means we’re never too old to learn and learning can change our lives at any age. We anticipate the initial class will be the beginning of a series for overall community education for older adults and their families.

Joining the Elder Options’ team to help develop the series and teach the first class, “Introduction to Care Giving Skills: For family caregivers or for those looking to begin a new career” is Roberta Rimbault, MS.

Rimbault is a health educator with personal and professional credentials around caregiving. She has served on the California Alzheimer’s Task Force, has taught nursing students on issues around aging and conducted research around dementia screening. She is a member of the Commission on Aging and is a firm believer in lifelong learning.

Introduction to Care Giving Skills is the key to opening the door to older adulthood, to understanding the issues around getting older, how to be safe, physically active, maintain good health and dietary habits as well as recognizing the independent spirit within or with others you’re working with.

It is geared toward the older individual, adults who are helping to provide the care and individuals wanting to learn more about the growing field of older adults.

The first class will be held at Cameron Park Community Services District, 2502 Cameron Park Drive in Cameron Park on Tuesday, Jan. 21 from 5:30-9 p.m. Cost is $35.

Registration can be done through Cameron Park CSD Parks and Recreation at 530-350-4655 or the day of the class. Class is limited to 20 participants.
