This five-week class is designed to prepare caregivers for the middle stage of progressive neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease and other progress illnesses requires families to plan for the future. Proactive planning can help ensure a high quality of life for the person with the illness as well as their family. Topics will include middle stage disease symptoms, behavior changes and strategies to cope with the changes, treatment options, legal planning issues, and resources to meet evolving needs.

For Spring 2012 we will be having a Savvy Caregiver Class
