Rita's story

THE SAVVY CAREGIVER

Caregivers need support, especially if they are caring for a loved one with dementia.  This free 4 week program is designed specifically to provide support and encouragement to dementia caregivers.

Dementia in our community affects us all.  Even those who are not caregivers can learn more and be a support to our friends who are caregiving. This four weeks will educate anyone in ways that will make our entire community better.

Each night together starts with a light supper and visiting. 

The first evening attendees will receive a spiral bound book packed with information to help the caregiver. Each evening after that hand-outs offer needed info. Karie Gerdes starts off the presentation on stages of Alzheimer's, communication tips, best ways to give care and more.  Each night also will have a time where attendees can ask specific questions and share their own stories.

This becomes a close time of encouragement and sharing.  Phone numbers and hugs are shared.

Call 815-269-2970 to register. Bring a friend.

Hope to see you at Our Savior Lutheran Church, 975 W Brookmont Blvd, Bradley, IL 60915 on Tuesday, March 20, 5:00-7:00 pm!
