Hospice of St. Francis offers free caregiver education classes


Hospice of St. Francis will offer Caregiving Education and Resource classes for current and future caregivers, their family and friends.

All classes were developed nationally in response to the issues caregivers themselves identified. Each class focuses on different issues a caregiver will face. Hospice of St. Francis’ programs and training classes are offered free of charge to Brevard County residents.

Sunflower House, located in Merritt Square Mall on Merritt Island, will host a series of classes. The program consists of six 90-minute classes that will be held from 1 to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. The dates for the education program are Sept. 26 and 28, and Oct. 3, 5, 10 and 12.
