Because you've made a significant difference for your caree, we know you can make a significant difference in your community helping family caregivers. We're honored you are considering our training programs so that you can be the best resource possible.
Denise M. Brown, founder of The Caregiving Years Training Academy, develops our training programs based on her thirty years of experience with family caregivers. In 1990, Denise began engaging family caregivers and former family caregivers in conversations through one-on-one conversations, support groups meetings, online chats, conferences and virtual meetings. That commitment to listening and understanding the caregiving experience informs the training programs she created.
Convenient, Virtual Training
For your convenience, each training program can be completed virtually. In addition, after completely your training program, you remain connected to our community so you receive support as you go out to make your difference.
Our first training programs, the Certified Caregiving Consultant and Educator programs, launched in 2016. In 2018, we added the Certified Caregiving Advocate, Facilitator and Specialist programs. In 2022, we added the Comfort Care Family Coach program. In 2023, we debuted our Certified Caregiving Guide program.
We strive to create training programs that reflect the current reality of caregiving which means we update our training content regularly.
