By creating a safe and supportive environment, Healing Moments provides families, friends and informal caregivers for persons with dementia the opportunity to learn and practice new, effective ways of communicating and connecting with their loved ones – enhancing relationships and quality of life for persons with dementia and their caregivers.
These programs can also be adapted for use as on-going support groups.
Healing Moments offers a variety of educational events and workshops for professional, family, and informal caregivers, nursing home administrators, health care professionals, nurses and nursing assistants, religious congregations, pastoral care ministers and volunteers, and community organizations.
"The Healing Moments for Alzheimer's program was a personally and professionally satisfying day. There is much to be done to extend support and meaning throughout the process of Alzheimer's disease, and the communications approach of Healing Moments opens minds and hearts. This program was a gift to everyone fortunate enough to attend."
~Kathryn Hedgepeth, Vice President, Programs & Regional Offices,
Alzheimer's Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter
