It can be difficult to understand, communicate and connect with people who have Alzheimer’s or dementia. They may say or do things that don’t make sense, or they may become upset or angry. Finding creative ways to react and respond can make a big difference in the quality of their lives and enhance on-going relationships. Providing state-of-the-art information grounded in Alzheimer’s science, and teaching unique techniques drawn from spiritual practices and creative drama, this workshop helps participants to:
- Expand their understanding of dementia
- Be present in the moment
- Accept what is
- Meet persons with dementia in their reality
- Let go of the need to control
- Find meaning and healing as a caregiver
This is a fragrance free event. So all may attend in good health, please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, aftershave or other scented personal care products.
Wednesday, May 1 & Tuesday, May 2, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day.
Registration deadline: April 24, 2019.
