The Savvy Caregiver is a 12-hour training program delivered in two-hour sessions over a six-week period.

The program is focused on providing instructional material for Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers. The program teaches the basic knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to handle the challenges of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease. Results have shown the training program reduces Alzheimer caregiver’s distress effectively.
