Sometimes the best way to take care of someone else is to first take care of yourself. Read a book! Attend a class! Move your body!

Living with Hope
Caregiver and Volunteer Training!
Caregivers help vulnerable people remain in their homes despite conditions that otherwise would obligate them to move off island or into institutional care. For those not already professionally certified, Hospice of San Juan offers Community Caregiver training alongside its New Volunteer training on a regular basis. Training consists of three 6 hour-days, given by professionals. All training participants undergo background checks as part of our screening process.
Please contact us if you would like more information or verification of completion of training:
Did you know that Tai Chi is not just a slow exercise, it is a powerful full-body workout? Wonderful for all ages, Tai Chi will challenge anyone of any age to develop balance, speed, reflexes, vision and strength. Taught the authentic way, no frills, no fannying around.
