COST:  $10.00 / START TIME:  2:00p EST

This program was designed for friends and families who are supporting someone living with dementia.

Holidays and Celebrations: Fantasy to Reality, Planning for Life in the NOW for Family Care Partners

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.
     

Positive Approach now offers live webinar events for friends and families who are supporting their loved ones that are living with dementia.  These interactive events will focus on a specific topic and include open discussions with the group. 

Cost per session is $10.00.  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.
