First 3-part Workshop Complete!
This week I finished my 3rd session of my first 3-part workshop. There were return residents and new residents. Really happy that my father attended this session. He said he was so proud of how well I did sharing my experiences and engaging the residents. We recapped how important it is to talk with loved ones now, executing the plan and helping loved ones transition to a new home. It was so wonderful to have the residents sharing their stories and asking questions. I'm in discussions now with the facility to conduct another 3-part workshop for family members (and residents) starting in January. I've got another presentation scheduled in October with healthcare professionals that I'm really looking forward to. It's so rewarding to share our experiences with others and I truly hope it can provide some help the residents, their families and others providing care and support when they become the ones left behind. Best wishes, Carla
