As long-time members of the senior care community, Shaun and Tiffany Phelan have always seen the need for better, more comprehensive training for people working with seniors. They also know that professional caregivers usually have a passion for learning and improving their skills. While working in the field, a local social worker said to Tiffany, “wow, I wish we had a better way to share what you know with all of our families.” From that simple statement, the Senior Helpers Center of Excellence in Caregiving was born. Tiffany immediately realized that it isn’t just professional caregivers who benefit and enjoy additional training, but the community could benefit as well and she set out to create an environment where anyone can upskill to meet the needs of our senior population.

The Center of Excellence in Caregiving is a one-of-a-kind immersive experience where attendees can participate in a wide range of trainings that touch on all areas of caregiving. The training setting is a home, just like what many of our caregivers experience in the field. Tiffany has partnered with local experts in various fields to create trainings such as:
- The Importance of Autonomy in Caregiving
- Hospice at Home, A Roadmap for Success
- Basic Caregiving Strategies
- Senior GEMS Training for Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregivers
- My Mom Said What?!
- Quality of Life as We Age
