Families facing Alzheimer’s disease will have access to a free, seven-week education course in Santa Fe offered by the Alzheimer’s Association, New Mexico Chapter.
The “Savvy Caregiver Program” will meet once per week for seven consecutive weeks at Kingston Residence, 2400 Legacy Court in Santa Fe. The course is from 2-4 p.m. Thursday.
The evidence-based training aims to teach caregivers practical techniques for interacting with loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease, and for understanding and managing their behavior. It also imparts tools for long-term planning and for reducing stresses common to Alzheimer’s caregivers. The course explains the signs, impacts and pathology of Alzheimer’s disease. 
To register or for further information, contact the Alzheimer’s Association, New Mexico Chapter at 473-1297, or email amontoya@alz.org.
Participants may be reimbursed for the cost of having others tend to their loved one while they attend the classes.
