I attached a research article about the The Savvy Caregiver Program, a successful program that is helping caregivers care for family members with dementia.
Here is the abstract:
The Savvy Caregiver Program is an evidence-based caregiver intervention for family members caring for a person with dementia who lives at home. It provides dementia education andcaregiving skills designed to reduce caregivers’ stress and improve caregivers’ attitudes. The twelve-hour program shows proven effectiveness. Creating Con dent Caregivers trains and supports Michigan’s area agencies on aging (AAA) to provide the program as its developers intended. Practitioners receive training, data reports, and technical assistance to implement the program consistently. Michigan adopted the program as an ongoing statewide program.
