Babysitter Education is a short workshop designed to train friends and family to confidently babysit a child with type 1 for a 3-4 hour period. We know that teaching others how to manage type 1 can be a difficult and emotionally draining experience for parents, and our Babysitter Education can help upskill your network and take the pressure off parents.
First, we work with the child's mum and dad to ensure our training manual is specifically tailored to their child's needs, and then we educate the family's nominated babysitters. We deliver the key messages in a simple way, supported by a published resource that can be referred to later.
Babysitter training runs by appointment with Registered Nurse/Diabetes Educator Lauren Haddow.
