The Alzheimer’s Association, NM Chapter, in collaboration with the Southern Area Health Education Center (SoAHEC), is announcing a new session of the free caregiver workshop for Spanish-speaking families facing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in the southwest New Mexico.
“Cuidando con Respeto” is a FREE course presented in Spanish for caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. It provides the same helpful information as the popular “Savvy Caregiver Program”, but is designed for Spanish-speaking families and caregivers. The workshop will provide a basic understanding of the necessary skills and attitudes to manage the needs and challenges of an individual with Alzheimer’s disease.
But “Cuidando Con Respeto” is more than just a Spanish-language “Savvy Caregiver”. It is a complete cultural translation of the Savvy program, with a sensitivity to the values and customs of Spanish-speaking families in New Mexico.
“Cuidando con Respeto” is presented as an 8-hour workshop that meets Tuesday, February 28th (10am – 6pm). The location will be the Deming Senior Center, 800 S. Granite St., Deming, NM 88030. To register or for more information, please contact Lori (575) 646-4887 or Ana Luisa 575-646-3061. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
