“I was impressed with the level of caring and involvement the caregivers have for their clients. I was also surprised at how poorly caregivers are compensated and how badly [some] who work for agencies are manipulated by employers.”

Janice G.

“The knowledge of the presenters was really top-notch. These are people I would likely just pass on the street and may hardly notice. Their experience was extensive; they conveyed their experience and new information exceptionally well.”

“New Mexico Caregivers Coalition’s role in bringing awareness to and recognizing the benefits of supporting caregivers in training and certification will provide better opportunities for this growing field. New Mexico and the Coalition can be a model in the country for this growing occupation.”

“We need to protect our loved ones from abuse by caregivers, too. Sometimes caregivers don’t have the right training but sometimes they aren’t the right kind of person who ought to be caregivers.”

Muchos, muchos gracias for the terrific professional seminar you presented on Wednesday. It was such serendipity I chanced on the event & I sincerely thank you for the opportunity, resource info & the real live networking of fellow attendees!

The entire seminar program …venue/hospitality/educational content & outreach was just outstanding…It’s wonderful to discover powerful connection support to help expand NM Caregiving!

Sharon C.

I want to thank you for connecting me to the NM Caregiver Coalition training on communicating with patients with Alzheimer’s. Almost immediately, I had the opportunity to use what I learned from the two amazing trainers with my 97-year old mother who has been experiencing some delusions. Instead of arguing with her about “reality,” I was able to go along “where she was” and was able to comfort her while also feeling more supportive and competent in my role as caregiver.  In addition, I was able to share what I learned and role model it for my sisters who are also caregivers. 

Elizabeth R.

“One of the reasons I joined the board was to help create an association that works for everyone, not only the paid care giver but the volunteer care giver, the person receiving care and the family members. No one should feel alone. Everyone should be able to live the fullest life possible.”

Ray B.

I wanted to thank you for the opportunity first off … The help is greatly appreciated and more than you know. This organization has done so much for me. Not only has my pay gone up because of the certificates [from trainings I completed here], but I have learned so much. Thank you so much again and I look forward to this new year and working with your organization.

Micaela Z
