Team of Experts: Savvy Caregiver™ DVD

The Savvy Caregiver DVD is based on the copyrighted Savvy Caregiver curriculum and was developed in conjunction with the University of Minnesota and experts from Emory University, Duke University, and Michigan State University. It was funded in part by a grant from the National Institute on Nursing Research.

HealthCare Interactive would like to thank the many families and dementia experts for helping to educate other caregivers by agreeing to participate and be videotaped in this program. We respect the sensitive nature of this material and appreciate the support of everyone involved.
