Family Care Partner Class – Contented Dementia
A 7-week course for family care partners of people living with dementia.
One-third of our workforce serves in caregiving roles outside of work. If you are one of those people and have ever wondered whether it is possible to create joyful moments, much less lifelong contentment for a parent or other family member living with dementia, this is the course for you.
Participation, at no charge, is for family care partners seeking immediate and long-term benefit for themselves and those in their care striving to live well with dementia.
Our latest schedule of classes is at Class & Events.
