If you are a family caregiver working to support the needs of a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia, there is now help! A free, six-session course in Malden will provide you with the information, skills, and support you need to provide top-quality care to the person you love… while taking care of yourself.
You deserve to be confident that you’re making your loved one’s life better. Don’t let anxiety define your life. You deserve to feel competent and skilled. Don’t spend your days questioning your own ability to provide care.
The free, six-session Savvy Caregiver course will provide you with essential information and resources:
- Understand the impact of dementia on your loved one…and on you.
- Learn skills for managing daily life without burning yourself out.
- Take control of your time and set goals for yourself and your household.
- Grow into a stronger communicator.
- Strengthen your family’s resources and resilience.
Thursday mornings from 10am to noon, give yourself the gift of time with experts and peers who want you to succeed. The class runs from August 31 to October 5, and takes place at Mystic Valley Elder Services headquarters, 300 Commercial Street, #19, in Malden.
Registration is free, but required. Call 781-324-7705 by August 25 to sign up or learn more about the Savvy Caregiver course. With advanced notice, Mystic Valley Elder Services can help connect you with a trained companion to stay with your loved one while you attend the workshops.
