"Savvy Caregiver" - Training for Families
The Savvy Caregiver Program is a unique approach that gathers and presents ideas from many disciplines: geriatrics, therapy, nursing and social work, etc. Caregivers learn, develop and modify strategies and skills they can use to produce positive outcomes that lessen their own stress and improve their particular caregiver situation.
