About the Event
Join us for one or both of these amazing sessions… As a Care Partner myself I have a front row seat of all the trials and tribulations that come with the journey, and what I know for sure is when you know “why” something is happening you can accept, adjust and move on… Let me answer the questions you don’t know how to ask and give you an understanding that will help you change your story, or the stories you support.
Understanding the Human Experience of Care Partners
•Experience the journey of family Care Partners
•Understanding the emotions that come with the journey, and how to support them…
•What does “taking care of yourself” really mean? It’s more than doctor appts, eating right and exercising…
•Flipping the Script
Dementia What would happen if we focused on what I have left…
•Discover how a person living with Dementia takes in the world around them.
•Connecting people to the world that is comfortable and familiar to them
•Learn the GEMS and how it helps us understand the different stages and support them.
•Practice Positive Approach to Care and Hand under Hand by Teepa Snow and learn how to support in a helping way to both of you.
