Are you caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other dementia? Are you noticing memory loss, confusion or unexpected behaviors?
This is a FREE six-week workshop series taught by professional instructors who have received accredited training authorized by the national Savvy Caregiver Program. It is for active caregivers of a family member or friend living at home with dementia. Caregivers learn to develop new strategies for caring for the person living alone with the disease as well as caring for themselves. These strategies and skills have been shown to decrease the stress of caregiving and increase well-being for both.
- Understand the impact of dementia on both you and the person for whom you are caring
- Learn the skills you need to manage daily life
- Take control and set goals
- Communicate more effectively
- Strengthen family resources
- Feel better about your caregiving
- Take care of yourself!
