Dementia Caregiving: Expanding the Family Caregiver Toolbox with Insight Memory Care Center

We all know that providing care for a family member with dementia can be challenging, and a caregiver’s needs often fall to the bottom of the priority list. Join us to learn resources and skills to reduce caregiver stress and promote well-being! Paul Raia, the keynote speaker, will present his Habilitation Therapy approach to help you focus on your loved ones’ remaining capacities rather than on what has been lost. Additional workshop sessions include the benefits of music and how it can be a key tool for coping for both the family caregiver and the care recipient. The workshop is free and open to the public; registration is required. Due to limited space, please let us know if you have RSVPed, but are no longer able to attend. Lunch will be provided! This workshop is presented by George Mason University, Virginia Center on Aging, Insight Memory Care Center, AARP Virginia, Fairfax County Area Agency on Aging, and the Alzheimer’s Association National Capital Area Chapter.
