Free online class for family caregivers of persons with dementia! The Kenosha County Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) together with the Alzheimer’s Association, is offering a free, online, professional-level training for the non-professional caregiver.

During this 6-week training, participants will gain knowledge to manage daily care of their loved one, skills to assess the abilities of their family member and to learn how to adjust the approach if needed, plus the confidence to set and achieve caregiving goals. A caregiver manual and online caregiving tools will also be provided. The Savvy Caregiver training is free to Kenosha County residents.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a free, 6-week educational series designed by Stanford University to give you tools to take care of yourself while caring for a loved one. Caregivers are currently spending much of their time at home with their loved ones or are unable to visit their loved ones who are quarantined in care facilities and may be feeling a greater amount of stress. This program helps family caregivers reduce stress, improve self-confidence, communicate feelings better, balance their lives, increase their ability to make tough decisions and locate helpful resources.
Registration required, deadline is September 8, call 262-605-6646 or 800-472-8008.
