An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, repeating until May 7, 2023

In this 2-part series, caregivers who care

neurocognitive disorders will be given
tools to increase their abilities to:

dementia-related behaviors

“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 partici-
pants increase their understanding of caregiving

and to feel less isolated by increasing awareness
of resources and widening their support system.

Clinic in Santa Rosa and is associated with the
