A Beaverton agency specializing in the home care of people wishing to age in place will offer free classes in the proper techniques of caregiving.

A growing field, caregiving has become increasingly complex as individual needs and settings vary, said Christina Foutch, clinical director of Home Matters Caregiving. “Lives are improved when folks receive proper care. We take seriously our role in the community and wish to share our techniques to any and all who recognize the need.”

Locally owned and operated, Home Matters Caregiving serves clients in private homes and institutional settings throughout the Portland metropolitan region. The needs of clients range from simple companionship to 24-hour medical management. Yet for all clients, standards that assure competence, dignity and consistency must be met to ensure client safety and peace of mind, Foutch explained.

Classes are two to three hours long and will be held at the Home Matters Caregiving training center, in Beaverton. The topics will range from learning to detect early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease and how to help a loved one suffering from it, to diabetic management, Parkinson’s care, falls and more. Open to professional caregivers and first-timers alike.
