This class is designed to help those who have loved ones with dementia, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. Few family caregivers have received training for the work they do as caregivers. This program has been developed by professionals to help caregivers manage day-to-day life with their loved one who has dementia. It is designed to help the caregiver develop the following skills:

  • How to take into account the person’s disease-produced losses in the manner in which they interact with their loved one.
  • How to take their loved one’s disease stage into account in caregiving.
  • How to help their loved one become and remain involved in daily tasks and activities that allow him/her to be contented throughout the day.

Class is facilitated by:
Dave Lutz, Bethany Care Minister Pastor
Linda Chambers, Assistant Director of House of Friends

Both have been trained by Caregiver University and have extensive experience working with those having dementia.  Because of the interactive nature of this course, participation will be limited to a maximum of 15 individuals.
