2015-03-27 Eldercare Info Sessions Offered NORTH CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE
1515 Howard Street
Petoskey, MI 49770

NEWS RELEASE – March 27, 2015

LEARN MORE ABOUT NORTH CENTRAL ELDERCARE CERTIFICATE AT INFO SESSIONS

North Central Michigan College is offering two information sessions in April about their new eldercare certificate. The sessions will take place on Friday, April 10 at 5:30 p.m. at the Wawatam Area Senior Citizens, Inc. Center in Mackinaw City and on Thursday, April 16 at 12:30 p.m. at the Friendship Centers of Emmet County in Petoskey. Lynn Turner, North Central’s Plus 50 Encore Completion Coordinator, will describe the history, rationale and details of the new certificate program. This certificate was created in conjunction with a grant from the Plus 50 Encore Completion Program, a national effort to train 10,000 baby boomers for new jobs in health care, education and social services.

The Eldercare Certificate program offers committed students the opportunity to help address the challenges facing an aging population as they confront a variety of decisions ranging from healthcare, fiscal and legal issues to questions involving ethics, death and dying, and communicating effectively across generations.

The program consists of 41 to 45 hours of coursework, or approximately three semesters if attending full time. Students interested in pursuing employment involving care of the elderly participate in an optional work-based learning program, designed both to expose them to potential work environments, as well as to encourage employers to take a longer “interview” look at potential employees.

For more information on the eldercare certificate, contact coordinator Lynn Turner at 866-680-0771 or lturner@ncmich.edu or visit www.ncmich.edu/pdfs/Eldercare.pdf.
