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.
For more information or to register call 617-628-2601 extension 3123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
