Savvy Caregiver® advanced program

How It Works

After completing Savvy Caregiver, family caregivers often ask if there is additional programming they can complete to continue their educational journey. Savvy Advanced is a 4-week program designed for caregivers who have already completed the Savvy Caregiver 6-Week Program, Tele-Savvy, or Savvy Express programs.

Savvy Advanced trains caregivers to:

  • Focus on caregiving skills, knowledge, and attitudes. 
  • Further refine their problem-solving and planning skills
  • Learn additional information about managing behaviors associated with the later stages of the disease
  • Further improve communications techniques
  • Gain additional behavioral guidance for their particular situation
  • Further improve caregiver self-care
  • Focus on future planning including later-stage and end-of-life choices and care.

How can I get trained to deliver Savvy Caregiver in my community?

Savvy Advanced trainers must first be trained in the full in-person (or virtual) Savvy Caregiver 6-Week Program. In addition, trainers must then complete a specialized Savvy Advanced training program in order to deliver Savvy Advanced.
