Training Overview
Sharing Knowledge and Building Resources

The Foundation for Senior Living considers Education and Training central to its vision of “a caring community that promotes the well-being of seniors and adults with disabilities.”

Through partnerships, advisory committees and community workshops and seminars, the Foundation for Senior Living invests significant time building awareness of the special needs and concerns of seniors, adults with disabilities and their caregivers.

We are confident that a well informed community will find ever more creative ways to embrace and celebrate its mature and frequently vulnerable members.

In addition to its many outreach activities, the Foundation has established several formal training programs.

Assisted Living Training
Family Caregiver Training
Weatherization and Home Energy Training


Assisted Living Training

Caregivers and managers of adult foster homes and assisted living facilities afford their care recipients the dignity and independence of living in a home-like environment. 

The Foundation’s Assisted Living Training program provides a full spectrum of practical classes that lead to certification for managers and caregivers of state licensed adult foster care homes and assisted living facilities.  Students including RNs, LPNs and CNAs receive the knowledge and confidence to pass state board exams and periodically renew critical skills.

Most classes are also available for other workforce caregivers as well as family members who wish to learn about topics and skills appropriate for their own specific caregiving challenges.

We invite you to review the current Assisted Living Training Schedule and visit our Assisted Living Education web page.


Family Caregiver Training

80% of seniors and adults with disabilities receiving long term care are attended by family members, who are frequently not prepared to assume the medical, psychological and financial burdens they lovingly accept. They deserve our admiration and support.

The FSL Caregiver House was opened in June 2007 as a gathering and learning place for family and workforce caregivers as well as for the many seniors and adults with disabilities who proactively manage their own care. 

A wide variety of learning events and training classes are offered there for free or for very reasonable fees. Family caregivers learn to cope with the challenge of caring for loved ones while preserving personal life balance.

To learn more about the FSL Caregiver House and Family Caregiver classes, please call Susan Kilby at 602-285-1800, or visit our FSL Caregiver House web page.
