It is a 12 hour evidence based program. Participants will gain:

Personal knowledge, skills and caregiving perspective
Skills to assess abilities of your loved one
Confidence to set and later caregiving goals
Strategies to manage activities of daily living
Understanding of disease progression
Ability to build a healthcare partnership with a professional caregiver.
Three sessions will be offered starting late this summer/early fall with more planned for next year. Maximum class size is 12. Call 800.272.3900 to enroll in a Savvy Caregiver program near you.
