Caring for Our Loved Ones with Alzheimer’s or Dementia

 Rev. Dr. Jade Angelica

On Monday evening, October 20 from 6:00-9:00 there will be an open session of Brita Gill-Austern’s course ‘Pastoral Care and Counseling on the Edge: Fostering Resiliency in Crisis and Trauma.’ The Rev. Dr. Jade Angelica, Director of Healing Moments Alzheimer’s Ministry, will lead this workshop on "Meeting the Mystery of Alzheimer’s:  Communicating, Connecting and Caring." Through presentation, experiential exercises, and reflection, participants will learn creative, effective methods for communicating and connecting with and caring for persons with Alzheimer’s and dementia.  Combining information about dementia with methods of improvisation, this spirited and artful presentation is designed to deepen our awareness of the value of persons with Alzheimer’s and dementia, increase understanding of their limits and needs, and improve the delivery of their care. 

There is no registration fee for this workshop.
