Pittsfield: Savvy Caregiver training program
Home Instead Senior Care of Berkshire County is offering a six session Savvy Caregiver training program for family and friends who are actively caring for someone with Alzheimer's or a related dementia.
The training will take place from Feb. 5 to March 19 at Home Instead, 66 Wendell Ave.
The training will help family caregivers to understand the impact of dementia on the person they are caring for, and also themselves. Participants will learn the skills they need to manage daily life, take control and set goals, communicate more effectively, strengthen family resources, and feel better about caregiving.
Registration is required. For more information or to register, call Bobbie Orsi at 413-442-0907.
