|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:30pm on Thursday, repeating until May 24, 2018

Creating Confident Caregivers utilizes the Savvy Caregiver Program, a university tested program for family members caring for a loved one with dementia at home. Two-hour sessions are held once a week for six weeks and lead by dementia care specialists. This program provides participants with information, skills, and attitudes to manage stress and increase effective caregiving skills.

 

Learn about:

  • Dementia and its effects on the brain
  • Caregiver resources
  • Managing behaviors
  • Improving caregiving skills
  • How to handle everyday activities more easily
  • Taking care of yourself to better care for your loved one

 

Care for your family member with memory loss can be provided free of charge so you may attend the class sessions.

Cost: $10.00 per workbook

 

To register call Jennifer Joyner at 810-239-7671 Ext 281.
