Learn to Care for the Elderly

elderlyI spent three years working in nursing homes.  During that time I learned that caring for the elderly is a skill learned through education and experience.  I worry when I hear about people shouldering the responsibility of caring for aging family members will little to no training, no knowledge of the materials and equipment needed to make the family member comfortable, and no clinical understanding of the psychological impact these changes are having on everyone involved.  I wrote this with those concerns in mind.
