Positive Engagement Memory Care
Saturday, March 11; 1 - 4 pm in Wesley Hall
Topics to be addressed will be Dementia/Alzheimer's disease and Stages of Alzheimer's. Special emphasis will be placed on confronting our fears and embarrassment when interacting with persons who have Alzheimer's. We will discuss ways to support loving relationships with caregivers, friends, and church family, and we will celebrate the sacred moments that we might discover in people who live with Alzheimer's. The workshop will feature video, role play, conversation aimed at new insight and helpful materials to take home.
The workshop will be led by two pastors who have spent most of their ministry working with senior adults:
- Susan Pendleton LCSW, a retired United Methodist Pastor, Pastoral Counselor, North GA Annual Conference
- Mary Lou Gilbert, United Methodist Pastor, semi-retired, and currently serving as Pastor to Senior Adults, Oak Grove United Methodist Church; Board Member for Senior Connections.
