My passions in life are always involved somehow with holistic health and wellness and helping others. Through sharing information about the law, health and wellness, care giving or business I have been able to build a career that incorporates love as a cornerstone. Our seminars are grounded in how to live and help others live with confidence and love. The field of care giving requires empathy, tough as well as easy love, and a knowledge of human psychology while also profitably employing right and left brain skills like home economics, sociology, health and wellness, and human behavior.
I stumbled into care giving decades ago and have embraced what I found there: a calling that is rewarding, meaningful, and challenging. Which makes it fun, worthwhile, and a job where I find myself wishing for more hours in the day. I like everything about it. And so I’ve been getting more and more questions on the topic of care giving these days. It’s not that I’ve solved all of the problems by any stretch of the imagination — we still have a lot of work to do here at Sweet Relief™. But what I have done is create a training and certification program that tours the country to help people learn the right way to take care of adults who depend upon them for simple- and not so simple care.
Our program is designed for the professional and non-professional caregiver. We combine eldercare with caring for people who are injured, recovering from surgery or dealing with a chronic illness. We address all of the critical topics in our two day seminar:
• What Anyone Starting in Care giving Needs to Know
• Mastering Everyday Challenges of the Elderly or Infirmed
• Dealing with Relatives
• Managing Medical Issues
• Safety Issues
• Mental Health Issues
• Legal and Financial Issues
• Avoiding, Detecting and Dealing with Abuse
• Death and Dying
• Caring for the Caregiver
• How to Hire Professional Caregivers
• How to Start Your Own Care giving Business
Our teaching programs are built around images — a picture really is worth a thousand words. Especially on Saturday and Sunday mornings, people don’t want to be squinting to try and read our manual. So the standard presentation is slides, and other than a quote from a noted source, best tips for the one time or professional caregiver… its images, lectures and demonstrations, little reading.
Whew! Seems like a lot to get through, but the seminars move quickly along and people know more of this than they might realize, and in the hours of presentation and Q&A, we have a lot of laughs and we all leave having learned something important and others leave certified.
So if there are 10 or more people who could benefit from this unique training opportunity let us know. Our distinguishing feature is that we come to you! We would love to help your town get is full portion of certified caregivers.

We will look forward to seeing you in your town soon!
