Are you caring for someone with dementia or memory loss?
The Riverside Center for Excellence in Aging and Lifelong Health has partnered with VirginiaNavigator to offer Caring for You: Mind, Body and Soul, a free educational video course for caregivers.
Ten short lessons offer practical tips to boost caregivers’ confidence and their ability to care for themselves. Microlearning allows caregivers to learn information in brief segments for better retention.
Caring for You: Mind, Body and Soul lessons include:
• Caring for Your Mind: Guilt and Fear, Frustration, Loss and Grief
• Caring for Your Body: Body Mechanics, Sleep
• Caring for Your Soul: Spirituality, Being in the Moment Together, Just for You
• Caring for Your Mind, Body and Soul: Identifying and Accepting Help
Participants will benefit from learning new skills and tools to effectively care for loved ones with memory loss. Explore the person-centered approach to caregiving, which recognizes the unique nature of each caregiving relationship and values honesty, trust, courage and patience, along with other characteristics.
This course is fully online, with lessons accessible anytime. Videos on new topics will be added soon.
