Caregiver Skills Training Workshops

The Caregiver Skills Training Workshops are provided monthly for caregivers to learn practical skills and receive hands-on training in transfer techniques, home safety, dental hygiene, nutrition, and medication management. These are monthly in the UT Health San Antonio School of Nursing Simulation Lab (SL1.118) from 3:30-5:30pm.
