This free six-week series will help family caregivers learn more about dementia care, stress relief, and using mindfulness practices and increased knowledge about dementia to strengthen the relationship with the person with memory loss. October 23, 2020 is week number two of a six week series.
Participants will learn about incorporating formal and informal mindfulness practices into caregiving and daily life, building a support system, self-compassion, and coping with grief. Each session will include a practice of mindfulness concepts.
Dementia information will include types of dementia, caregiver stress, understanding the distress of the person with memory loss, using empathetic understanding to respond to distress, and purposefully shaping the relationship to accommodate changes.
