Presented by Ruth Hjelmgren, MA, MSE, Director of Community Relations at Artis Senior Living of Woodbury

Have you found yourself suddenly cast in the role of caregiver for someone who is experiencing dementia or memory loss? Are you struggling as you navigate this new reality? This compelling presentation is based on current research that translates into positive actions for the individual diagnosed with dementia and for the caregiver. These tips will help you see the blessings even when the going gets tough.

We will discuss:

  • Challenges caregivers face in managing the ever-changing needs of their loved one
  • How to find ways and the time for self-care
  • Effective communication strategies that help ease the burden of caregiving
  • Innovative ideas to help you and your loved one from becoming isolated and lonely

This presentation is given in partnership with Artis Senior Living of Woodbury and Community Thread.

Please RSVP By Wednesday, June 9th

The Best Anniversary

My husband has aphasia and has lost his ability to speak. It’s very frustrating for him, and it’s a sadness for me too. So imagine my surprise when Artis helped him celebrate our wedding anniversary. When I visited him that day, residents and staff were all gathered around the room, carrying a banner the residents had made—with my husband in the center, holding a bouquet of flowers and a card for me! They even helped him sign his name on the card—something he hadn’t been able to do in years! In a way, it was one of our best anniversary celebrations. Thank you Artis, from the bottom of my heart.
