August 21, 2020: Meaningfully Engage Individuals – In their Rooms – Especially Those Living with Dementia
Presenters: Carmen Bowman, with Guest Host Megan Hannan
Join us for oodles of ideas to meaningfully engage individuals with their surroundings, especially those living with dementia. Perhaps we are in our biggest challenge ever, to provide meaningful engagement to persons alone in their rooms. What a great opportunity to be creative! Institutionalized, isolated people need the gift of our intentionality to be able to engage naturally with their surroundings, even when there is not a pandemic. We can help to overcome boredom. Get a long list of ideas, contribute to it, and allow it to inform your work into the future.
