“The program helped me to understand that I’m not alone. I have to take care of me as well and it gave me confidence in my ability.”

“Thank you, thank you, thank you! You make us as participants have hope in a time when much feels hopeless. The course is spot on and “REAL” not just textbook but hands on.”

“I had to “feel my way” as a spouse and caregiver, and I didn’t always get it right. The Savvy Course was right on the money for me. I wish I’d taken it a year, or two, or three earlier. In fact, I think that the course could have taught me to be a better husband if I had taken it decades ago.”

“Both leaders were incredibly approachable. They provide support in a caring and nurturing manner.”

Virtual Dementia

Did You Know? 83% of dementia care happens in the home, but most families are unaware of the challenges and how to overcome them.

The Tour is conducted in a home like setting and help caregivers and friends and neighbors understand a little more about what is like to live with dementia. Sensory props are provided to those experiencing the guided tour with the goal to create awareness and compassion for those living with and caring for someone with an impairment. A debrief session is one on one with the social worker to share feedback and answer questions.
