April 15, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until April 22, 2023

In this 2-part series, caregivers who care for a person with dementia and other
neurocognitive disorders will be given tools to increase their abilities to:
• Understand and accommodate challenging dementia-related behaviors
• Understand, communicate and remain “connected” with their family member or client
• Understand common causes for resistance to participation and cooperation while assisting
with personal care
• Understand feelings of denial, guilt and how to handle frustration and the significance of
taking time for self-care

This free workshop is intended to provide a supportive educational opportunity to help
participants increase their understanding of caregiving and to feel less isolated by increasing
awareness of resources and widening their support system.

Workshop facilitator, Alexis Gildewell, LCSW is a member of the Geriatric Medicine Clinic
in Santa Rosa and is associated with the Redwood Caregivers Resource Center sharing her
expertise in teaching classes and facilitating workshops and support groups.

Lunch will be provided.

Respite care or respite care reimbursement may be available with prior arrangements.
