Creativity in Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

Our staff at Kiva Assisted Living have been trained in Dementia Care.  We use creative ways to communicate with those with dementia in our Day Care and Assisted Living resident care.

Many families are helping to care for their loved one at home.  We’d like to share an opportunity for family members and caretakers to learn more about Creativity in Dementia Care.

Elder Options is sponsoring a workshop in Gainesville, Florida. “Creativity in Dementia Care” is about using Art and Poetry and more in the care of those with Dementia.

The event is a FREE.  It will be held on November 12th, 2015 at 8:30 to 2 p.m. in Gainesville.

Sounds like a fun time! Register by calling Tom at 352-692-5226
