Powerful Tools for Caregivers @ Explorer’s Club of Salem
Sep 27 @ 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an education program to help family and friends caring for older adults with long-term health conditions (e.g., stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and others). It is a six-week series led by trained facilitators using a standardized curriculum. Classes are held for 2 hours once a week for 6 weeks.

Powerful Tools helps caregivers develop skills and confidence to better care for themselves while caring for others. The weekly topics range from reducing stress to communicating in challenging situation and mastering care giving decisions. Many caregivers have found this class beneficial, including those caring for a spouse or partner, or adult children caring for parents. The older adult, the participant is caring for, can be living with them, in a nearby community or across the country.

Savvy Caregiver Workshop @ The Residence at Riverbend
Sep 27 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The SAVVY CAREGIVER Program is a FREE six-session training for family & friends who are active caregivers, caring for those with Alzheimer’s or Related Dementias.

The Savvy Caregiver program is a 6 week training program for caregivers who care for someone with Alzheimer’s or Related Dementias. The program is facilitated by 1 or 2 trained Practitioners. It is based on the notion that family members who become caregivers need to be trained to assume a new role- caregiving- for which they are unprepared and untrained. Throughout the program- and laced through the various program materials such as the Caregiver’s Manual- the central concept that is emphasized is the notion of strategy. Caregivers will be urged to learn, develop and modify their strategies so they can accomplish their role of caregiving- which includes the contented involvement of the person they care for. The program builds information and knowledge about the illness, developing skills to manage daily life, and fosters a different attitude towards caregiving. The program is geared to informal caregivers of those either living at home or planning to return home, and in a moderate stage of illness.
