A Loving Approach to Dementia Care, Raising Dementia-Awareness Worldwide
October 11, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Did you know that of the approximately 16 million people who are caring for someone with some form of dementia, 68% of them will pass away while caring for their loved one primarily due to the overwhelming stress that often accompanies dementia care?
Ms. Laura Wayman brings us hope, purpose and meaning to the challenges that these caregivers face. She will share “creative interventions,” a clear understanding of what dementia is, and what it is not, and a specialized tried and true form of communication for those who are suffering with Alzheimer’s or any cause of dementia symptoms. This presentation is targeted directly to touch the heart of all caregivers, families, senior care professionals and the entire community. This event is open to the public and free to attend. Her material will provide the opportunity for audience members to feel a full range of emotions, from tears to laughter, and comfortably relate to sometimes serious and disturbing information, leaving with a new sense of confidence, purpose and direction.
