"Caring & Coping" Caregiver Workshops

 

“Together We Make a Difference”

Caring & Coping caregiver workshops are designed by Alzheimer’s Tennessee, Inc. to help the community better care for those with Alzheimer’s disease. Plus, participants learn skills and strategies to cope with the challenges of caregiving for dementia.  Sessions feature various keynote speakers who are nationally-renowned and/or local experts in the field.

The caregiver workshops offered throughout East Tennessee and the Cumberlands throughout the year provide valuable and practical training for family care partners, volunteers and professional care providers who deal with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.  After the day-long sessions, participants should have the following:

  • A better understanding of the disease, its process, and available treatments
  • Practical tips for caring for an individual with dementia, while maintaining one’s own health and spirituality

Sessions typically last from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. and will cover a variety of topics including an overview of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, caregiver guilt, spirituality, and personal care issues.
