NEW! Independent Living Assistant Series

14509941883_8788161296_bMosaic Vocational School is excited to announce that we have developed a new 4 week course called the Independent Living Assistant Series. This course is designed to teach students how to be caregivers for those who can no longer do it themselves due to illness, age, or disability.

According to The Family Caregivers of British Columbia 80-90% of all care for the ill, aged and dependent in British Columbia is done in the home by friends and family. If you’re the informal, unpaid caregiver for an aging parent or family member, you know all about the difficulty in balancing their needs. At some point, you may need to pay for more comprehensive help or get professional training yourself so that you are better prepared to cope with the demands of being a caregiver.

Graduates of the Independent Living Assistant Series are professionally trained and are equipped with the tools and skills to ensure that their client, friend or family member receives the support they need to live their lives as independently as possible. The program has been developed not to replace other Health Care Professionals but to compliment them, perhaps as a stepping stone for pursuing a career in Health and Wellness or simply to ensure the caregiver feels confident in the care they are giving.

If you are interested in signing up for our January series or would like more information please call us at 250-850-2007.
