The Creating Confident Caregiver Program is designed to assist individuals caring for family members who have dementia such as Alzheimer’s Disease and are still living at home.
This program has been found to reduce stressors of caregiving by providing tools and information to help empower caregivers.
The workshop meets for two hours once a week for six weeks.
The program provides family members with information and tools in four main areas:
- Managing Daily Life
- Managing Behaviour
- Managing Own Well Being
- Managing Resources
The Confident Caregiver training is available to any caregiver caring for a loved one at home suffering from Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia and/or caregivers/family members who are assisting the primary caregiver with care giving duties.
There is no charge to caregivers to attend this workshop or for any materials provided. Respite services are available at no cost while the caregiver attends the workshop.
