Savvy Caregiver Program: Empowering DC Caregivers
DACL’s Savvy Caregiver Program empowers caregivers to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to care for your family member with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. The Savvy Caregiver Program is a series of six (6) classes for caregivers in DC who provide care for older adults, age 60 and over, and adults with disabilities, age 18 and older, living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias.
