Immanuel’s CNA class provides workforce development for the Flathead Valley while training caregivers for our seniors.
Police, fire fighters, and other emergency personnel don’t always know how to respond when they answer a call involving a senior with dementia. Immanuel’s Memory Support experts provide training free of charge to first responders in the Flathead Valley so they can more effectively serve the area’s seniors.
Come learn about local and national resources that can assist you in providing care for another adult while maintaining balance in your life. This free 6-week education series addresses caregiver concerns and challenges including: planning ahead; finding, creating, and using resources; self-care for the caregiver; family dynamics and communication; financial and legal resources; and dementia and chronic illness. Six weekly classes are held twice each year in the spring and fall.
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia is a daily challenge, and it’s helpful to have others to talk with about the experience. Immanuel’s support group, facilitated by a dementia-care expert, offers caregivers in the Flathead Valley the chance to talk to each other and to gain valuable insights as well as emotional support for their unique journey.
Immanuel’s outreach doesn’t stop at seniors. We know that people of all ages are affected by poverty. That’s why Immanuel provides food and volunteers 1-2 times per month for Feeding the Flathead, a nonprofit organization committed to providing high quality, nutritious meals to those in need.
As part of our ongoing support of research into dementia, a team from Immanuel joins the local Walk to End Alzheimer’s every year.
At the Immanuel Foundation, we believe that every senior living in Montana has the right to a safe, secure home in an engaging and supportive community. We work every day to make that vision a reality and your financial support is crucial.
