Trualta Partnership Helps Caregivers Learn New Skills to Support Themselves and Loved Ones
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) and the Greater Wisconsin Agency on Aging Resources
(GWAAR) announced a partnership with Trualta, a new free online educational tool for family caregivers across
the state. Trualta helps caregivers learn about health issues, care techniques, and managing care for loved ones
during flu season and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sponsored by DHS, GWAAR, and the Dane County Area Agency on Aging, this partnership with Trualta can
help individuals needing care live at home longer. Family caregivers can visit WisconsinCaregiver.org and
click on the “Trualta” banner on the main page to sign up for access to Trualta’s library of online resources.
The modules teach caregivers how to safely provide hands-on care, connect families with reliable support
agencies, and offer information and video training from experienced professionals in a quick and easy format.
For low-vision users or for caregivers who prefer audio instructions, Trualta also offers a “read to me”
