Caregiver Continuing Education

We believe that Orcas residents who require Caregiver assistance with daily living deserve well trained Caregivers.  We also believe that many of the island's existing individual providers of this service would like to further develop their skills but are challenged by our isolation from appropriate educational facilities and the high cost of participation in this type of training.

Washington State certified long term care workers must complete 12 hours of continuing education annually.  Lahari sponsors on-island DSHS approved Caregiver Continuing Education classes quarterly.  All of the classes are free and open to the public.
