Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Join us for the 6 week session to gain tools to care for loved ones with Alzheimer’s. This Evidence-Based program presented by Baypath with be part lecture with a powerpoint presentation, part discussion and interactive. Pre-registration required. The Savvy Caregiver program originated from the Minnesota Family Workshop (MFW) which was aimed to improve outcomes for family caregivers and the persons with dementia through a multidimensional training approach provided to primary caregivers and other family members. Evidence supporting the efficacy of the Savvy Caregiver program has been well documented. Caregivers reported structuring meaningful activities for the person with dementia. This program is designed for people who are actively caring for a loved-one with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia-related illness. Focus is on building knowledge about the disease and skills needed for effective caregiving, getting support, and practicing self-care.
