Webinar:  Holidays and Celebrations:  Fantasy to Reality, Planning for Life in the NOW (for PLwD)

COST:  FREE! / START TIME:  1:00p EST

This program was designed for people who have received a diagnosis of dementia.  Teepa has created a forum for you to share your thoughts, questions and concerns.  We want to know what's important to you so that we can share out with care partners.  Please join us!

Each year anniversaries, holidays, and celebrations happen. Each new event reminds us of our history and life stories, unless dementia is part of our life. Then suddenly, these events can feel very different and evoke very different feelings and reactions.  This session will guide all involved in re-thinking the events and developing strategies and techniques that offer opportunities for pleasure, joy, and positive interactions.

Objectives: 

  • Discuss common stessors and negative feeling associated with holidays, anniversary dates, and large celebrations when dementia is part of the picture
  • Compare the abilities and interests of person living with dementia and the historical event
  • Modify the event, expectations, scope, and expectations in order to optimize positive impact and experiences during holidays and celebrations.

"No decision about me, without me."

We've heard many people living with dementia share their thoughts along the journey. In response to their request, Positive Approach now offers live webinar events for people living with dementia.  Each interactive event will focus on a specific topic and include open discussions with the group. 

Each session is being offered for FREE to those living with dementia.  Participants must register to attend.  Registration is limited.  Registration for the live events includes access to the recording of the webinar. Recordings will be released within a week of the live event. 

REGISTRATION FOR EACH EVENT WILL CLOSE 24 TO 48 HOURS BEFORE THE EVENT.

If you have questions or if you don’t see the topic you want to discuss and explore, please contact Corrie Phillips.
