Monthly Support Group

Support is key to staying as healthy and able as one can during times of being a care partner or family member of anyone living with a disease such as dementia.

Laura offers a monthly Caregiver Support Group via zoom (at the moment) on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at noon.

If you would like to join the group, please contact Laura for the link.  This group is already established, and there are adult children of parents living with dementia as well as spouses of persons living with dementia.

Please do not hesitate to join us.

Engagement Training

Once a person is diagnosed with any dementia, often times it is almost immediate that people want to "help" by taking over everything for them, and not allowing them to continue to do for others.

This workshop helps families and care partners understand the importance of engaging your family member in ways that are meaningful and which allows him/her to feel like they are still contributing to their own surroundings as well as the greater community.

This workshop is available for family members and care partners

2 hour workshop

ODL will work with families around cost of trainings.

(This workshop would take place in your home.)

Care for the Caregiver Program

It is true what they say on an airplane when talking about saving yourself first in the case of an emergency, and that if you do not, you can't save anyone else.

The same is true with regard to being a care partner or caregiver.  If you do not look at how you are caring for yourself, you can become frustrated easily, burnt out, angry and depressed all without even realizing the change in yourself.

Our Care for the Caregiver program is all about you.  It's taking a look at what is happening in your life and finding ways to help you cope with the challenges that are specific to you and your needs.

This program offers a free assessment with Laura which will take approximately 1 hour of your time.
