Program Options

Working with industry experts and employers, Caring for Nancy has created solutions to help you play a role in preparing your employees for the realities they face while caregiving. Below is a list of our program sessions that you can choose from for your employees. Each program is approximately 1 hour.

Choosing Programs for your Employees

Caring for Nancy will partner with you to uncover which topics will most benefit your employees and customize those programs accordingly. We will customize a solution, tailored to your employees' needs and your organizational budget. From there you can chose on-site events, such as a lunch-and-learn and/or special speakers.

  • Step 1: Assess the needs of employees through leadership meetings, surveys, or focus groups.
  • Step 2: Recommend the Caregiver Education Program(s) that best fit those needs and why.

No matter which program you select, your employees walk away with:

  • Caregiver planning tools, including those for self-care, legal considerations and medication management.
  • Take-home resources that address specific needs. Expert sources include the Minnesota Board on Aging, the V.A., other caregiver support groups, social workers, attorneys, and many more.
