The Alzheimer's Association will offer a six-week program designed to provide clinical level education and training for family caregivers. "The Savvy Caregiver" will be held on consecutive Mondays beginning Feb. 11, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. The series will conclude on March 18. The program will be held at the Aging & Disability Resource Center, 50 N. Portland St. in Fond du Lac. This workshop is open to family members who are providing care for a loved one with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia.

The Savvy Caregiver training program is a unique approach to family caregiver education. The central concept is the notion of strategy. Throughout the program caregivers are urged to learn, develop and modify strategies to accomplish the goal for their particular caregiving situation. Participants will "graduate" with increased personal knowledge, skills to assess abilities of a loved one with dementia, confidence to set and alter caregiving goals, strategies to manage activities of daily living, and perspective on the course of Alzheimer's and other related dementias.

Advance registration is required. The cost to attend is $30, which includes a caregiver manual and CD. To register, please contact Ginny Nyhuis at 920-838-1311; or e-mail gnyhuis@alz.orgs
