Creating Confident Caregivers is an exciting new program in select regions of Michigan, for family caregivers of persons with dementia and/or memory loss. Creating Confident Caregivers is a six-session workshop led by trained dementia care specialists. This university tested program provides participants with information, skills and attitudes to manage stress and increase their effectiveness as a Caregiver.
Creating Confident Caregivers is once again available in the Houghton area, brought to you in part by the U.P. Area Agency on Aging/UPCAP. There is no charge to participants for the weekly sessions or materials and respite care may be available through participating area agencies while caregivers attend the workshop.
