What participants say about the UCARE classes:

“Thank you for having prepared yourselves to lift and teach us and so many others. It is a new world - this care-taking business, for so many of us. Who would have known that life just doesn't come to a rainbow end for our loved ones, but rather, we have to travel a very different road than we ever have before in order to help them finish with grace and dignity and proper care.”

“Our class instructor was great – always appreciated that she was ready to go with her lesson material and I was happy for the class discussions. The discussions helped me feel like I am not alone. I feel more empowered to be a caregiver. I loved the guest speakers they brought answers and comfort and expertise. Thank you for a great experience and for a break from the stress at home and for help with knowing how to better deal with the changes that my [loved one] is facing.”
