Caregivers & Family Members of Persons with Dementia
Anyone from the community who is caring for an individual with Alzheimer's Disease or other forms of Dementia is invited to attend this informative presentation on caring and enjoying time with the person with dementia.
Caregiving After a Diagnosis of Dementia: Living and Loving
Join occupational therapist Teepa Snow in a session that will encourage both the person with dementia and their care partner to learn more about themselves and each other so each day is a gift.
We will explore personality traits, environmental and activity preferences, planning, organizational needs, preferred routines and habit patterns for each person.
Once we understand ourselves and each other, we will put this knowledge to work for us. Some recommendations will be made based on common changes that come with dementia, while others will be based on what helps or bothers each person.
The presentation will emphasize the importance of helping the care partner and the person with dementia to reach out to others for support. Ideas from this session can be implemented into your daily routines.
