Identifying Needs to Empower Native Elders

Native Elder Caregiver Curriculum

Caring for Our Elders

The most critical link in caring for elderly family members remains family caregivers.

The Native Elder Caregiver Curriculum (NECC) & Online Modules are tools that can assist family and community members, as well as Community Health Representatives, 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.
