This series of six workshops addresses specific issues that can improve communication and interaction with loved ones with dementia or memory loss. This is a wonderful opportunity for those actively caring for someone with cognitive impairment to be interactive and learn techniques that will really make a difference in day-to-day care.

The trainer, Dorothy Colby, is a Certified Positive Approach to Dementia Care (TM) Trainer, with more than 15 years of professional and personal experience caring for people with dementia. She is Administrator for Hale Ku’ike Memory Care Home in Nu’uanu, where she also trains staff. Positive Approach to Care (TM) seminars, developed by occupational therapist Teepa Snow, provide essential information for families and care partners on how to have a positive and meaningful relationship with loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia throughout their journey.

Refreshments will be provided.

Please arrive 15 minutes early to park and register.

Detailed parking instructions will be sent to registrants prior to workshops.
