Family-Friendly Tools and Tips

Presented by Lori La Bey, Founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks. Lori La Bey is a passionate advocate who searches for ways to shift our dementia care culture from crisis to comfort. She was recognized by Sharecare as the #1 Influencer Online for Alzheimer’s. As a professional speaker and daughter of a mother with dementia for over 30 years, Lori gets it!

This program is designed to help families and friends deal with caring for a loved one with dementia. Participants will walk out with a new understanding of the multilevel dynamics at play when a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia comes into play. We’ll discuss real-life situations, actions and reactions of all involved as days unfold into months and years. The overall goal of this presentation is to remove the fear associated with dementia and get people to realize the true joy which can be embraced when living in the moment.

Baseball...At Any Age

Dad had been a baseball coach most of his life, and wanted more than anything to play again. So the folks at Artis Senior Living created a baseball diamond inside the community! When game day came, everyone turned out to play or cheer—staff, other residents and their families. The staff accommodated everybody—of all ages and abilities. Especially Dad. He got his wish. I couldn’t be more grateful.
