The Dementia Series: Living in the Land of Oz

Workshop #1: Lions, Tigers, and Bears. Oh, My!
A caregiver’s experience is like Dorothy’s walk through the woods; you never know when something scary will jump out at you. In this workshop caregivers will learn about normal and not-so-normal emotions. They will learn how to effectively manage stress, understand the meaning of the “Ah Ha!” moment, and learn essential coping skills to empower them to walk through the woods bravely.
Workshop #2: If I were King of the Forest…
If caregivers were kings, they would be able to control everything. But no one can change the fact that progressive dementias, like Alzheimer’s disease, are fatal. In this workshop caregivers will learn about the importance of an Advance Directive and what to do if there isn’t one. They will learn how to make decisions about life sustaining treatments, the importance of palliative care, when to call Hospice, and the meaning of healthy grieving. With this knowledge caregivers will be empowered to be Kings of their own forests.
Workshop #3: We want to see the Wizard…
Sadly there is no Wizard who can magically make us physically, emotionally, and spiritually strong. However, every caregiver has the intuitive ability to do this if given the right tools. In this workshop caregivers will learn how to mend, strengthen, and maintain their three parts through good nutrition, setting limits and maintaining boundaries, and nurturing spirit. They will come away feeling empowered to care for self as much as they care for loved ones.
