HealthLink plans caregiver program

GLOVERSVILLE – HealthLink Littauer, the community health and wellness service of Nathan Littauer Hospital and Nursing Home, will offer a program titled “The Savvy Caregiver” beginning Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. at Nathan Littauer Hospital, 99 East State St.

“This is an interactive, educational series for family members and friends who care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia,” according to Brigitta Giulianelli, program manager with the Alzheimer’s Association of Northeastern New York. “It is designed to help caregivers better understand the changes their loved one is experiencing, and how to provide the best individualized care along the continued decline associated with these conditions.”

The program is free and open to the public. Five weekly sessions will conclude May 30.

To attend, call HealthLink Littauer at 736-1120.
