Nursing Courses for Relatives

Caring for a relative not only costs time, but also requires practical nursing knowledge and skills. Only few relatives are trained nurses and so most do not have a specialized nursing education to care for those close to them. Most people can help with the daily household chores such as cleaning, cooking or shopping, but due to their lack of experience in nursing care, there is often the fear and risk of making a mistake when it comes to caring for their loved ones.

DEKRA Akademie EPE organizes nursing short term courses for relatives and all those interested in this field. With just a few lessons next to experienced and specialized professional staff, you too can gain basic practical knowledge, according on your relative's problem, as well as instructions and tips for his/her daily care.
