Living With Dementia Learning and Support Program
Registration Starts February 23, 2015
Space is Limited
Holy Blossom Temple is gearing up to offer its Spring 2015 Living With Dementia program, in partnership with Mount Sinai Hospital’s Reitman Centre.
Alzheimer’s disease is often called a family disease, because the stress of watching a loved one slowly decline affects the entire family. Every 68 seconds someone develops Alzheimer`s disease, one of the most common forms of dementia.
Holy Blossom Temple`s Living With Dementia program is offered free to family members caring for a loved one experiencing dementia. It is open to the entire community – members and non-members. This 10 week program is unique. It is comprised of support, education, coping and communication skills development for family member caregivers as well as a stimulating program for their loved ones experiencing dementia. Each of the 10 week sessions closes with a group judaic experience led by one of Holy Blossom’s Rabbis or Cantors.
