Support for Serious Illness in Chautauqua County, New York

Coaching you to be a more capable and confident caregiver.

Caregiver Training

Let’s face it, caring for a seriously ill loved one can be exhausting. Even though a labor of love, tending to your loved one’s needs around the clock is a lot of work – and very stressful.

Many families are thrust into this role feeling unprepared and uncertain. That’s why Chautauqua Hospice & Palliative Care wants to be beside you during these challenging times.

Our professional caregivers gladly share their years of experience and insights, as well as our hands-on help, to build your caregiving skills and confidence. Practicing the right techniques can make all the difference in safety and comfort for you and your loved one.
With our training and coaching, you can learn proper caregiving skills and techniques, including:

  • Turning or repositioning your loved one in bed
  • Giving a bed bath
  • Changing the bed with your loved one in it
  • Transferring your loved one from bed to chair, and vice versa
  • Applying oxygen
  • Assisting your loved one with walking

Every caregiver needs a break now and then. With Chautauqua Hospice Care, our volunteers can companion your loved one or assist around the house, so you have some time to care for yourself or tend to other important matters.
