Savvy Caregiver Program

The Savvy Caregiver Program is a training program for caregivers who care for family members who have a dementing illness, such as Alzheimer’s disease.

To do this work successfully, caregivers need special skills and knowledge. They also need an outlook or attitude that helps them to look after themselves.

Savvy caregiving can enable you to develop a sense of control or mastery. It can help you to find ways to reduce the effects of caregiving stress and to increase your sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.
