Presented by Amy E. Matthews. Amy has worked exclusively in the field of Alzheimer’s and related dementia disorders for the past 30 years. Her experience ranges from Adult Day Care and Home Health to working as the original Activity Director in the very first dementia-specific assisted living community in the country and later as Executive Director opening a building in West Orange, NJ.

Placing someone into long-term care can be one of the most difficult decisions a family may have to make, and the interaction between the facilityand the family will make or break this relationship. This program will describe what families often go through before moving a loved one to a Memory Care facility. It will also give staff members tools to create a team that can effectively partner with family members in providing the best possible environment and care for the person living with dementia.

Please Register by Monday, May 23rd

6:30 - 7:30 p.m. EST
5:30 - 6:30 p.m. CST

Presented by Heather McKay, PhD, OT/L. Heather is an Occupational Therapist, Dementia Care Specialist, and international Trainer/Speaker on topics related to dementia care and caregiver education.

Have you ever walked into a room, forgotten what you came there for, and feared the worst: “Is this dementia?” If you’re questioning your memory or interested in maintaining your brain health, you’re not alone! We’re all aging and have opportunities to care for our brains at every stage of life. Detecting a cognitive problem early could lead to a quick resolution, restore brainpower, or maintain brain function longer—all for the sake of living life to the fullest through old age.

After this program, you’ll be able to:

  • Distinguish between normal forgetfulness and a memory/thinking problem that does warrant alerting the doctor during your routine brain checkup.
  • Describe other conditions that mimic dementia and effective treatment approaches for each.
  • Identify three key essential components of a brain health program.
  • Explain the top 10 best brain exercises and strategies to grade up or down for your just right challenge.

My Mom...the Fashionista!

My mom always dressed fashionably. Everyone admired how glamorous she was, but I couldnt believe it when Artis partnered with Macys to throw a community fashion show—with residents as the runway models! There was my mom, dressed in the latest styles, rolling down the red carpet. But the best thing she wore: a beaming smile. I could tell how proud and beautiful she felt about herself—and that meant the world to me. Artis gave that back to her. I’ve got a new set of photos to treasure!
