The Savvy Caregiver Program is designed to train caregivers in the basic knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to handle the challenges of caring for a family member with memory loss, dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease, to be an effective caregiver. This is a 12-hour training program/course that is delivered in 2-hour sessions over a 6-week period. The program focuses on helping caregivers think about their situation objectively and providing them with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to manage stress and carry out the caregiving role effectively. Research has demonstrated significant positive outcomes for caregivers who participated in the program.
The Savvy Caregiver Program training is being offered on the following dates, times and locations:
Thursdays, on August 31, September 1, 14, 21, 28, October 5th, from: 6:00-8:00PM at the Charlotte White Center in Dover-Foxcroft.
Registration is required. Please call Eastern Area Agency on Aging at 1 800 432 7812 to register for the class. Thanks you.
