The Savvy Caregiver—Six Part Series

July 31, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

A training program for family members or friends providing care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia

This six-week program is about the what and how of caregiving. It is built around two ideas:

  1. You probably never expected to be a caregiver.
  2. And…you never trained for the role.

You can become a Savvy Caregiver!

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease is a specialty requiring specific skills and an attitude that contributes to the well being of both the caregiver and the person with the disease. This program, co-sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association, enables caregivers to develop a sense of control and mastery within the caregiving role.

Based on research by experts in caregiving techniques, this six-week course will provide clinical-level training for family caregivers. Participants will graduate with:

  • Personal knowledge and skills to assess abilities of their loved one with dementia
  • Confidence to set and alter caregiving goals
  • Strategies to manage activities of daily living; and perspective on the course of Alzheimer’s and related disorders
