Years of Experience

The need is great for services and programs to help those who care for a family member or friend (family caregivers). You already know. That great need led you to us. You want to make a difference. You want to be the difference. Our training programs help you be the difference.

We want you to bloom into the leader in your community who supports and serves family caregivers and former family caregivers.

Family Caregivers Want Help

  • Eight in 10 (80%) family caregivers are interested in paying for products or services to help them manage

But They Don't Know Where to Turn

According to recent research from Age of Majority:

  • Almost nine in 10 (87.9%) cannot identify any companies that stand out in helping them as caregivers.

No one has more understanding about family caregiving than Denise Brown at The Caregiving Years Training Academy. My first training in 2017 opened my eyes to understanding how my own caregiving experience fit into the greater world of caregiving. That Certified Caregiving Consultant training and each one that came after are 100% on target regarding what's involved in family caregiving and how to support caregivers both emotionally and practically. I always feel inspired and energized throughout and beyond. Denise's support doesn't end with the trainings. She provides opportunities and connections that have been invaluable as I've developed my own caregiving consulting business. ~ Beth Suereth, CCC, CCE and CCF and owner, Caregiving Pathways

I often worry when I purchase certification programs that I will spend money, get a ton of information, and then be left on my own to figure out what to do next. Well, this is NOT the case with Denise Brown’s training programs. Since becoming a Certified Caregiving Consultant, Educator, and Facilitator over a year ago, I have been in constant contact with Denise. Not only is she always available to talk through an idea or problem, she is constantly finding opportunities for our community. Denise is a leader in every sense of the word. If you are considering one of Caregiving Training Academy’s programs, know that you will not be alone. You are joining an amazing group of supportive individuals who will be with you every step of the way. ~ Carolyn McGinn, CCC, CCE, CCF and owner, www.GrandmaHasDementia.com.
