You’ll learn about a variety of topics including:
- Stress solutions and practical tools for caregivers to relieve stress and improve well being
- Different forms of dementia, prevention strategies, and the latest research developments
- Understanding unpredictable behavior in those with dementia
- Insights and resources to help clients successfully transition home after a hospitalization or in-patient rehab

Hanson Services also offers CEU continuing education classes for professionals in the healthcare industry. We provide a range of six live-lecture courses, two of which are available online.
We also offer non-credit courses which are open to community organizations. These can be shortened and customized to fit your needs as you try to keep up with all there is to learn about later-life care. You can find out more about these classes through the links below:
If your loved one is receiving home care – from Hanson Services or any other care service – and you would like to better understand how to care for them, we can help with that as well. Our Education Director will be more than happy to sit down with you and walk you through what you need to know.
