United Way and partners host holiday celebration for Savvy Caregiver facilitators and caregivers

Thank you to all Savvy Caregiver facilitators and caregivers who joined us in December at Lehigh Valley Active Life to build connections and take part in a holiday celebration, while Nest In Place, a United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley partner agency, offered respite care in the room next door.

Extending another sincere thanks to The Fleming Foundation for sponsoring the event.

Savvy Caregiver programs aim to help those providing care for loved ones living with dementia through relevant knowledge, skills and self-care practices. These programs are proven to decrease family caregiver distress, burden and depression, while increasing caregivers’ sense of competence and confidence in their role.
