The Native Elder Caregiver Online Module developed by the National Resource Center on Native American Aging (NRCNAA) is a tool that can assist family and community members who have the responsibility of caring for their Elders. This curriculum is dedicated to these caregivers and their values of respect, generosity, compassion, and fortitude. We hope it will empower these special people with some of the information they need to carry out their sacred work.
The curriculum was developed through a collaboration between NRCNAA and Cankdeska Cikana Community College along with special input from Elders and community members of the Spirit Lake Nation.
This module is an interactive version of the NECC that was developed and specifically designed for family members providing care for an older adult.
