The definition of a caregiver: A skilled helping hand in moments of need for daily living – for the elderly, for the sick, for the disabled.
With new assisted-living facilities slated to come online in the near future, and with several already in operation, the need for certified caregivers in the Flagstaff area and Coconino County is growing. To meet that need, Coconino Community College has brought back its Assisted Living Facility Caregiver Certificate program, which begins in January with the spring semester.
Coconino Community College needs to offer real-world experience to the students in the Construction Technology Management program. Habitat for Humanity of Northern Arizona needs workers to help build affordable homes for Flagstaff.
In late May, leaders for the two organizations got together and made the arrangement formal. CCC CTM students will help HFH build the first of, with hope, many “starter homes” for the Flagstaff community beginning this fall.
Learning wildfire suppression at CCC
Cascade Parcell and her instructor Brad Williams study the ponderosa pine. They’re looking for “lean” – the direction the tree wants to fall. “I’m going to use wedges on this one,” Parcell says, picking up a chainsaw. She fires up the chainsaw, kneels at the base and starts cutting while Williams carefully watches.
Parcell was one of a handful of students taking the Wildland Fire Chainsaws course in April at Coconino Community College. The course is part of a CCC Wildland Fire Suppression Certificate program.
