Lifespan Caring Network Training
Easter Seals Wisconsin and Respite Care Association of Wisconsin are working in partnership to create a statewide “Caring Network” of highly trained respite care providers who will have the required skills to provide in-home respite care for individuals with a variety of disabilities, including highly challenging behaviors, and basic medical and personal care needs.
The online training course is available at no charge for potential respite care providers. The course covers:
• Disability Basics,
• Lifts & Transfers,
• Personal Care/ Daily Living Skills,
• Medication Administration,
• Communication Techniques,
• Abuse and Neglect,
• Caring for Challenging Behaviors,
• Free Time Activities,
• Making Connections (meeting/ training with the family).
Courses are self-paced, with the ability to start and stop the modules as they go. Videos, worksheets, and quizzes to test the knowledge of participants are included. Upon successful completion of the online course, participants receive a certificate and are offered the opportunity to be added to the statewide Wisconsin Lifespan Respite Care Provider Registry.
