Registration is now open for Savvy Caregiver, a free training program that provides family caregivers with skills and knowledge about dementia.

The six-session class returns to Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services on Sept. 13, and will meet Fridays from 9:30 to noon.

The curriculum includes an overview of dementia, along with how its progression can impact daily life. The training is also highly interactive, with a focus on developing practical tools and strategies that fit the participant’s needs.

Classes are open to a limited number of participants, allowing the caregivers to work closely with the facilitators. Subsidized respite options are available to some caregivers.
