The Savvy Caregiver
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

For most family caregivers, caregiving is a new role - one for which training is needed, just as one would receive training for any new job.

The Savvy Caregiver™, a HealthCare Interactive® program presented in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association®, is a free, multi-session training series for family caregivers to help them better understand the changes their loved ones are experiencing and how best to provide individualized care for loved ones along the continued decline associated with Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Based on research by experts in care-giving techniques, this multi-week course provides clinical-level training for family caregivers, going beyond introductory education programs. Graduate with:

• Personal knowledge, skills and caregiving outlook
• Skills to assess abilities of your loved one with dementia
• Confidence to set and alter caregiving goals
• Strategies to manage activities of daily living
• Perspective on the course of Alzheimer's and related disorders.

This program is free. Registration is required. For more information and/or to register, call our 24/7 Helpline 800.272.3900.
