Caregiver CPR Check-Up


The beginning of the New Year is the perfect time to test your smoke detector batteries, update your emergency contact list and confirm that your caregiver’s CPR and first aid certification is up-to-date.
Many places offer CPR and first aid training in the Westchester County area, including:
Blythdale Children’s Hospital

Parents and caregivers who have current certification but wish to brush up on their skills, may benefit from The American Heart Association Family & Friends CPR Anytime Personal Learning Program.  CPR Anytime is a self-directed, personal CPR kit that makes learning the core skills of CPR easy, convenient, affordable and fun for the whole family. It takes just 22 minutes to learn and can be done anywhere.
Family Helpers recommends that all caregivers hold current CPR and first aid certification.
