More and more people are caring for their sick, frail or debilitated loved ones at home. Because many feel ill-prepared to meet the challenges of providing hands-on care, Hospice of Northwest Ohio offers a two-hour workshop to teach family caregivers the basics. This much-needed program is being offered several times a month and is free to anyone in the community.

Through discussion and interactive demonstrations conducted in the Hospice of Northwest Ohio skills lab, family caregivers will learn tips to enhance the way they provide these care needs:

• Bathing
• Oral care
• Positioning
• Back rubs
• Transfer techniques
• Making an occupied bed
• Ambulation
• Feeding
• Incontinence care
• Hand hygiene
• Skin care
• Nail care
• Foot care

Workshops are open to anyone in the community will be held several times a month, based on need. To allow active participation, class size is limited to six and pre-registration is required.

Those interested should call Sandy Garrison at 419-661-4001 to find out when and where the next class is being offered, to ask questions or to register.

Female coach

The Buffalo Bills last week hired the NFL's first female full-time coach (Kathryn Smith--special teams quality control coach). Should there be more women in coaching?
