Through the Family Caregiver Support Program at Spectrum Generations we are able to offer multiple resources and educational opportunities for caregivers in our community: 


The Savvy Caregiver

The Savvy Caregiver Program is a free, six-session training series for family caregivers. For most family caregivers, caregiving itself is a new role, one for which training is needed, just as you would receive training for any new job. The Savvy Caregiver Program helps caregivers better understand the changes their loved ones are experiencing, and how to best provide individualized care for their loved ones throughout the progression of Alzheimer’s or dementia.
