The Savvy Caregiver—Six Part Series

San Raphael 1:00 ‒ 3:00 pm

August 7, 2018 to September 4, 2018

Join JFCS’ Seniors At Home for a training program for family members or friends providing care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association.

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

Six Tuesdays

July 31, August 7, 14, 21, 28 and September 4, 1:00-3:00pm

Cost is free; sponsored by the Ned Eichler Scholarship Fund .
