AUGUSTA — Spectrum Generations plans to offer a Savvy Caregiver class via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. Tuesdays, July 19 to Aug. 23.

The nonprofit area agency on aging is aware that caregivers or care partners of someone with Alzheimer’s face challenges when it comes to attending events. For this reason, Spectrum Generations will offer the class when most caregivers are available and when the person they are providing support for is still sleeping, according to a news release from the agency.

Savvy Caregiver provides the tools and knowledge to be a more effective caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s disease.

Caregivers should leave the class with a better understanding of the effects of the disease, and how to identify triggers to avoid undesirable behaviors associated with Alzheimer’s and related types of dementia.

The class is being implemented to help get the information into the hands of those who want to attend the class from the comfort of their own homes.

Anyone is welcomed, and other members of the family are encouraged to attend. Participants will receive coffee and biscuits along with their class materials.

To register, call 800-639-1553.
