This interactive workshop will provide practical strategies for optimizing your care partnership and caregiving experience. A Practicing Presence workbook will be provided to each attendee.

  • Sensualize–using the six senses to enhance your care partnership regardless of stage
  • Validate–using centered breath and passive improvisation to navigate dementia behaviors
  • Personalize–honoring the history to maintain the present-using music, movement and tangibles to lighten the caregiving load
