 Morning session: Agreeing to Remember Workshop, presented by Steel City Improv.  Learning to go with the flow and accepting realities of others goes a long way in dementia care.  This fun and educational workshop taught by Rachael Wonderlin and Justin Zell create a unique approach to caring for those who are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.  This event is free and a boxed lunch will be provided.  

Afternoon session: Living in someone else's scene, presented by Rachael Wonderlin, Dementia by Day.  Doing what's true for someone living with dementia can be a real challenge for caregivers.  Through the improv techniques we cover in the morning session, Agreeing to Remember, we learn more about embracing their reality and how to use theater techniques to live in someone else's scene.  What happens when the scene is scary?  What happens when the scene conflicts so deeply with your own reality?  In this presentation, join us as the more challenging aspects of dementia communication are discussed, and what it means to deal with timeline confusion.  

This event is open to family caregivers and professionals. A certificate of attendance will be provided.  To register for this program, please send an email to aaasupport@loudoun.gov.
