Savvy Caregiver Training

The Savvy Caregiver Training Program is a free and unique six-week program, designed for family caregivers who regularly assist individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Through this program, caregivers have the opportunity to learn and develop strategies they can use to accomplish their goals as caregivers, regarding their individual situation. I truly believe this in an invaluable program that offers caregivers an amazing opportunity to increase their skills. The program gathers ideas and concepts from many disciplines and presents them to the caregivers. A few benefits of completing this course are the increase in skills, knowledge, confidence, outlook and understanding as a caregiver.

The number of people with Alzheimer’s is continuing to rise each year. The families of these individuals primarily assume the care. The family members now have this unexpected profession or caring for an ill individual, and normally have no training or preparation. Savvy caregiving enables the caregiver to develop control over the situation and reduce the stress associated with this.

The classes meet for two hours each week, for six consecutive weeks. The participants will learn about the inevitable progression of Alzheimer’s and how to offer support through the different stages. These efforts will also be linked to those affected by dementia. By the end of the six weeks, caregivers will gain the confidence and knowledge to master their caregiving skills.

There is a range of program options in a variety of areas in North/Central Florida. Please follow the links below for exact dates, times and locations for the upcoming program start dates and for a week-to-week course description!
