Taking care of a person living with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia is specialized work. To do this work successfully, caregivers need special skills, knowledge, and a positive attitude that helps them care for themselves.

The Savvy Caregiver Program is a FREE, six-session training program for family and friends who are active caregivers, caring for those living with Alzheimer’s or related dementias.

The program will be held every Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. starting on April 29 and running to June 3. The group will me at the Mattapoisett Council on Aging, located at 17 Barstow St., Mattapoisett, MA. This program is offered by Coastline.
