Presented by Lori La Bey, Founder & CEO of Alzheimer’s Speaks, LLC, and Co-Founder of Dementia Map© Global Resource Directory; Lori is internationally respected for her work in the field of dementia and caregiving

We will explore the underbelly of giving care in a safe, fun environment. By exploring things most people don’t dare talk about, we can identify what is dragging us down, ripping at our soul and making us feel less than when we are working so hard to be more than we ever have been. This process can help you find the peace, balance and joy you deserve in your life, not only when caring for another, but throughout your life.

Please Register By Sunday, August 8th

Presented by the Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center (ADRC) and Artis Senior Living of Commack

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia can be a long, stressful and intensely emotional journey. Things that were once easy get harder and can lead to frustration for both those with dementia and their caregivers. There are many things you can do to ensure everyone feels calm and safe as you are managing day-to-day life.

Join the ADRC, along with Artis Senior Living of Commack as we share strategies and provide support for caregivers and professionals in our community. Each meeting will address topics such as Repetition, Resistance, Negativity and Boredom from Social Isolation. Attendees can expect:

  • Helpful resources and tips
  • A supportive environment to share concerns
  • Opportunities to ask for advice

Each support group member will receive a Grab & Go Activity Bag compliments of the ADRC and Artis Senior Living of Commack.

A gift will be raffled to one lucky attendee at each meeting.

Please register by the day prior to the event.

My Mom...the Fashionista!

My mom always dressed fashionably. Everyone admired how glamorous she was, but I couldnt believe it when Artis partnered with Macys to throw a community fashion show—with residents as the runway models! There was my mom, dressed in the latest styles, rolling down the red carpet. But the best thing she wore: a beaming smile. I could tell how proud and beautiful she felt about herself—and that meant the world to me. Artis gave that back to her. I’ve got a new set of photos to treasure!
