CEU Cost: No CEUs Offered
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!
Keeping our spirits strong and healthy should be part of every care plan. Creating opportunities for ourselves and others can prove challenging when many people in our life are not aware of dementia and its symptoms. In order to sustain many faith practices and keep our faith communities as part of life, awareness and knowledge will be essential. This session will provide the basic concepts to help faith communities provide support for people living with dementia and their supporters in real and substantial ways.
- Review some of the common challenges the faith community and those experiencing dementia in their lives face as the condition progresses
- Compare the idea of being friendly versus being competent and skillful in supporting the person living with dementia and their family
- Explore possible ways in which the faith community can begin to explore options for support.
"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.
