What is it about?

Using the experiential exercises of Improvisation, family caregivers have a chance to practice skills that help them in their role as caregivers. A fun and supportive learning environment offers another opportunity to build confidence and competence in the ongoing tasks needed to care for yourself as you care for a loved one.

Why is it important?

With the ever-increasing numbers of people living with Alzheimer's, other forms of dementia and others living with cognitive challenges, the burden of family caregiving is skyrocketing.

Improv for Care helps you do just that in a different format than other caregiving classes.
