The number of people with dementia is on the rise, and for each person diagnosed, care is required. In a community the size of the Grace community, there are likely many families caring for a loved one with dementia. Many any are doing it without any education or training, which leaves them vulnerable to confusion, fear, frustration, and ultimately, burn-out. By partnering with the staff of The Gardens, our goal is to equip caregivers to better care for their loved one by better understanding the disease and learning practical strategies to cope with it. We will also share the many local resources available to help families dealing with dementia, whatever their needs many be.
