Training program offered for veterans’ caregivers

Staff Report

The Nevada Department of Veterans Services will be sponsoring two free comprehensive training programs to assist those caring for aging veterans including those living in eldercare communities.

The programs are called “Bravo Zulu: Achieving Excellence in Relationship-Centered Care.” They’re designed to give care partners of veterans a better understanding of military culture as well as the influence and impact of military service experiences on the healthcare needs of aging veterans. While originally developed with Nevada veterans in mind, “Bravo Zulu” can also improve the care and support of civilian elders, particularly those living with dementia.

WHEN: Reno, Jan. 13 from 8:15 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

WHERE: Brookdale Northwest, 5165 Summit Ridge Court
