Savvy Caregiver® 3-week Express Program

How It Works

The Savvy Express program is a shorter version of the original Savvy Caregiver program delivered over a 3-week period (instead of a 6-week period). As with the original Savvy, Savvy Express is designed to benefit someone providing care for an individual living with memory loss, dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease but who may not have the time to complete the traditional 6-week program.

Savvy curriculum empowers caregivers by enabling them to:

  • Gain a better understanding of Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
  • Develop self-care strategies.
  • Learn skills and strategies to successfully provide daily activities of ‘Contented Involvement’ for their family member living with dementia. 
  • Identify and engage family and other resources for care-related assistance and support.

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

Savvy Express 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 Express training program in order to deliver Savvy Express.

I am a family member or caregiver of someone with dementia. How do I find a Savvy Caregiver 3-Week Program near me?
