Training / Creating Special Spaces
Presentation of “Creating Special Spaces”
Special Spaces is one of AC’s practical training programs designed for in-home family caregivers caring for a loved one with dementia. Discussion centers on the importance for personalizing space in your home so you can create a nostalgic environment, for the benefit of the individual with dementia. A creative environment encourages better communication and inspires activity participation, even at home.
The idea behind Aging Creative is simple, as we age we should continue to evolve in all areas. While we still enjoy doing the things we love we also should take on new interests and challenges. However, for those that find it difficult in performing what was once routine, the fun may stop for them.
I believe each of us can still enjoy the things we always loved by approaching things differently while “at our own pace.” — Jill Modell-Dion, Creator of Aging Creative
