Seabury Savvy Caregiver Program Helps Fight Caregiver Burnout

June 21, 2019

 

We talk about caregiver burnout, but do not seem to take any action?  Seabury Resources for Aging Ward 5 Savvy Caregiver Program (SCP) was designed to help caregivers with the knowledge, skills and attitude to successfully care for family members living with Alzheimer’s or other dementia's.  The SCP was a series of 6 classes for DC Caregivers who provide care for older DC adults (aged 60 +) and/or adults with disabilities (age 18 +) who are living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of cognitive impairment.  This Seabury Resources for Aging, Ward 5 program is part of the Senior Services Network supported by the DC Department of Aging and Community Living.  

 

The series of 6 classes were led by Ward 5 Case Management Coordinator, Melva M. Meade, LICSW and Caregiver Case Manager, Eleanor L. Turner, LICSW.   The class curriculum was:

 

  1. Introduction to Savvy Caregiver

  2. Strategies for Self-Care

  3. Contented Involvement

  4. Stages of Dementia

  5. Care-giving Skills

  6. Strengthening Family Resources
