The Savvy Caregiver – Six Part Series
San Rafael 1:30 - 3:30 pm
July 25, 2017
A training program for family members or friends providing care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.
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 6-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.
When: July 25, August 1, 8, 15, 22, & 29, 1:30 – 3:30 pm (six Tuesdays)
