Spectrum Generations is offering an evidence-based class, “Savvy Caregiver,” via Zoom, Tuesdays 6:30 to 8:30 a.m., from July 19 to August 23.
The nonprofit Area Agency on Aging is aware that caregivers or care partners of someone with Alzheimer’s face challenges when it comes to attending events. For this reason, Spectrum Generations will offer the class when most caregivers are available and when the person they are providing support for is still sleeping.
Savvy Caregiver provides the tools and knowledge to be a more effective caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s disease. Caregivers leave the class with a better understanding of the effects of the disease, and how to identify triggers to avoid undesirable behaviors associated with Alzheimer’s and related types of dementia. The class is being implemented to help get the information into the hands of those who want to attend the class from the comfort of their own homes.
Anyone is welcomed and other members of the family are encouraged to attend. Participants will receive coffee and biscuits along with their class materials. Pajamas, hair rollers, pin curls, and bedhead are all welcomed.
To register for Savvy Caregiver, call 1-800-639-1553.
