CaregiverU is a collaboration of 20 Central Texas non-profit agencies and community organizations, joining together to bring support and resources to families that are caring for an older loved one.
We are currently offering one course for caregivers and one course for all older adults. Classes are offered at no cost to participants. They are offered multiple times throughout the year at various locations in the Central Texas area, depending on who is teaching and hosting the course.
Currently, CaregiverU has two course offerings:
- Powerful Tools for Caregivers: A FREE six-week course that provides emotional support for family caregivers. Classes offered in Austin, Georgetown, Round Rock, Dripping Springs, Bastrop, and San Marcos. Click here for the current schedule.
- Strong Seniors: A FREE fall prevention program to reduce the risk of devastating falls in older adults, and to help seniors develop an active, healthy lifestyle. Class schedule is available on the Strong Seniors tab. More classes will soon be added .
