In particular, theprogram is designed to develop the following skills:• How to take into account the person’s disease-produced losses in the manner in whichthey interact with the person.• How to take the person’s disease stage into account in caregiving.• How to help the person become and remain involved in daily tasks and activities thatallow the person to be contented throughout the day.Bold new program forAlzheimer’s family caregivers.savvy caregiver training programprofessional-level training for the non-professionalThe program also provides instruction in:• Important self-care skills – especially those related to understanding and managingcaregivers’ own feelings.• Skills for making decisions as they continue their caregiving journey.• Skills for navigating family issues that come up while providing care.Outlook or Attitude.

Caregivers will enhance their skills and confidence through variousexercises.• Self-Valuing.
