United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley Offers Leading Dementia Family Caregiver Trainings with Support from the Fleming Foundation
United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley and Age-Friendly Lehigh Valley are proud to conduct Savvy Caregiver® trainings to help those providing care for loved ones living with dementia. Thanks to funding from the Fleming Foundation, these leading evidence-based training sessions are offered online and in person and delivered in two-hour sessions over a six-week period.
Savvy Caregiver has helped decrease family caregiver distress, burden and depression, while increasing caregivers’ sense of competence and confidence in their care role through relevant knowledge, skills and self-care practices.
“To be an effective caregiver, in any capacity, proper education and self-care must be prioritized. I see firsthand that Savvy Caregiver equips participants with the tools to do just that,” shared Carol Gonzalez, Savvy Caregiver training facilitator.
