At Improv for Caregivers, we know you want an easygoing relationship with your loved one. Caregiving for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia is a heavy burden with daily responsibilities that can feel overwhelming, depleting, and unappreciated. You need support in navigating these difficult circumstances, but it’s hard to find anything that really makes a difference. That’s why we started Improv for Caregivers, an ongoing support group that blends therapeutic techniques and improvisational comedy games to help caregivers cultivate ease, joy, and flexibility in their relationships and feel more hopeful. In our interactive workshops and support groups, you’ll have fun developing a skill set that helps you communicate in new ways, understand your loved one’s changing perspective, diffuse challenging behavior, and cope with the stress of it all. When you learn improv skills for caregiving, you’ll worry less, laugh more, and find joy in the everyday with your loved ones.
