Topic: Dementia

A few months ago, I attended a 4 session class on the subject of Dementia presented by Sheila Brandenburg, Executive Director at Jamie's Place, our elder care facility in Winthrop. The classes were titled: "What is Dementia?", "Behaviors and Communication", "Meaningful Engagement & Activities" and "Care Giving or the Art of Loving Another". Sheila has an easy-going presentation style, using humor and real life examples. All questions from class attendees are answered with accurate information and specific recommendations on how to approach a family member or friend who may be exhibiting signs of dementia.  I strongly encourage anyone who is interested in future classes to contact Jamie's Place through email jamiesplaceafh@yahoo.com or by calling 996-4417.
