The Marlborough Senior Center and Council on Aging will host an informative training session featuring Hearthstone Alzheimer Care’s award-winning “I’m Still Here” approach. Backed by over 20 years of research and field-testes extensively, this approach is taught and utilized in state of the art memory care programs throughout the U.S. and internationally.
The training will be held on Friday, May 15 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Marlborough Senior Center (40 New Street, Marlborough, MA).
The I’m Still Here philosophy provides a proven method for increasing quality of life while reducing the behaviors that caregivers often find challenging. In this four-hour innovative training session, caregivers will learn how to use Hearthstone’s time-tested methods to create strategies for successfully caring for and engaging their loved one at home.
Participants in the training session will learn valuable strategies for:
– Reducing repetitive question asking
– Reducing resistance to bathing
– Dining out with your loved one
– Successful communication techniques
– Making your home “dementia friendly”
– Activities you can do with your loved one
– Maintaining relationships with family members and friends
– Creating memory cues that can help maintain independence
The training is sponsored by Hearthstone Alzheimer Care and the I’m Still Here Foundation and is free for people caring for their loved one at home, but seating is limited. Lunch will be served.
