Compassion Ministries will be hosting the Senior Gems Dementia Care Workshop Series at Redeemer on January 22nd from 10am -3pm. This is a community event our church is hosting and lunch will be provided for those attending. A respite room (adult day care) for a person’s loved one will be available as well. This means if someone is a caregiver for their spouse/parent they can still attend the day because we will take care of their loved during the workshop; providing an activity, music, rest time, lunch and snacks.
We do need to have RSVPs for this event- Please be sure to spread the word to all you know.
An in home care agency called Senior Helpers will be having an expert (we may even get their national expert, Teepa Snow) come and speak to us about how to understand how dementia works and the techniques in caring for an individual. See the attached poster. These are new and proven techniques for caregivers. This will be open to the community
