Complete Dementia Care Package for Families:
The Savvy Caregiver™ Program & CARES® Dementia Care
Are you concerned about the possibility of memory loss? Or, are you caring for a loved one with memory loss, Alzheimer's disease, or dementia and would like to learn more about the disease and caregiving techniques?
The 4 modules (4 hours) include:
1. Understanding Memory Loss
2. Living with Dementia
3. Using the CARES® Approach
4. Providing Structure and Support
The CARES® Approach you will learn in this program stands for:
C - Connect with the Person
A - Assess Behavior
R - Respond Appropriately
E - Evaluate What Works
S - Share with Others
The online program is rich with activities and video interviews of family caregivers, people with dementia, and dementia experts. We suggest that facility administrators using CARES purchase a site license that includes this program, so that everyone (staff and families) can have a common understanding and language around the CARES Approach and dementia care.
CARES® Dementia Care for Families™ was funded in part by a grant from the National Institute on Aging and was developed in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association and a national team of experts.
