Hi, I'm Hartmut Broring.
I'm a German trained physiotherapist. I have dedicated the past years of my work to the 60+ population and those managing chronic illness. I am also the host of the eight section lecture series to help you become a certified caregiving exercise specialist.
This lecture series is geared towards formal hired caregivers, as well as informal family member caregivers, assisting those in need. The tremendous increase in our population of the sector 60+ and within that sector, especially the 80+ population, make it necessary for us to expand the team of professionals to administer exercise programs to our seniors in order to maximize the quality of life.
It is no longer enough for us -- as physical therapists, physiotherapists, personal fitness trainers or occupational therapists -- to fulfill this role. We need to expand and bring in the caregivers onto our team.
The goal of the caregiving exercise specialist lecture series is to help you become a more confident and more competent caregiver in assisting the professionals (the physio therapists, the physical therapists, the OT) in administering a daily dose of fitness training and or therapeutic exercise -- to help your care receiver to maximize their quality of life at any age and any stage.
I thank you very much for your interest and hope you will become that confident and competent caregiving exercise specialist.
