Care partnering between a caregiver and person with Alzheimer’s disease will bring moments of pain, celebration, fear, and joy – days of saying “This is the best thing I’ve ever done.” and days of saying “Get me out of here.”
Care partners can learn to listen to messages from deep within as spoken words become more difficult and care partners can learn to offer the kind of loving care that transcends illness and applauds humanness.
Join us to hear techniques for caring for the caregiver as well as the patient.
