Memory Care: The Art of Caring:
By 2025, the number of people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease is estimated to reach 7.1 million – a 40 percent increase from 2015. Congregations and families play a critical role in caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementias.
A workshop on “The Art of Caring” will be held on Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 9 AM to 12 Noon in the Family Life Center of the Shippensburg Church of the Brethren, 253 E Garfield St, Shippensburg. By learning about the warning signs, the difference between Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, visitation tips, how to have difficult conversations, and how to support everyone involved, you will become equipped with the skills needed to begin mastering the art of caring.
This workshop is led by Jennifer Holcomb M.S., NHA, CDP, CDCM, and CADDCT. She has a graduate degree in Human Services, is a licensed Nursing Home Administrator, a Certified Dementia Practitioner, a Certified Dementia Care Manager, and a Certified Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care Teacher. She works directly with people in varying stages of Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias and currently oversees the Memory Care program at Cross Keys Village - The Brethren Home Community.
This workshop is open to the public and is by donation. Please call the church office (717-532-6526) by March 20 if you would like to attend.
