The Caregiver Wellness Program is comprised of two parts. The Navigating Your Journey portion provides the opportunity for care partners to self-reflect and discover where they are on their journey with dementia. The Staying Connected portion provides an opportunity for care partners to stay in touch with other attendees and our organization.
All care partners who have participated in the Navigating Your Journey sessions are invited to attend a bi-monthly Caregiver Wellness: Staying Connected session. As well, a general invitation to all care partners will be extended to provide opportunities for care partners to stay in touch through workshops, guest speakers and special events.
