The Savvy Caregiver: A Community Education Program

Are you a caregiver for a family member who has Alzheimer's disease or another related disorder? Does that person live at home? Are you looking for ways to increase your knowledge and confidence in this role? Savvy Caregiver is designed for family caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's who continue to live at home (not in a residential care setting). 

Classes are offered free of charge through an Alzheimer's Disease Supportive Service Program grant from the Administration for Community Living through the Illinois Department on Aging. Sponsored by the First Christian Church Care Ministry. This program lasts 6 weeks on Friday afternoons (2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.) at First Christian Church. Registration is limited to 12 participants. You must be pre-registered to attend. For more information and to register, please contact:
