The patient facilitator attempts to engage participants in mentally and socially stimulating activity for the duration of the group session. Typically, participants are beyond the early stages of dementia.

* Open group: allows new members to join at any time

 

CAREGIVER CELEBRATIONS

One of the hardest things to do as an Alzheimer's caregiver is learning how to understand, cope, and communicate with a person living with dementia.

Learning how to communicate effectively requires change. How hard it is to change the way you have been doing things with a person you have known all of your life? How hard is it to change a pattern of communication that has been ingrained in you all your life?

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND :  Marilyn Woelke, MS Gerontology, LCSW and Linda Gilman aka Miss Lily, MS Gerontology, LPC will deliver a lighter presentation with role play that defines the “dos” and “don’ts” of Communication Techniques with persons with dementia.

The program will be offered twice in January 2014.
