Arts and Minds – Mindfulness for Caregivers

About This Program

Mindfulness for Caregivers is an opportunity for caregivers to learn and practice mindfulness. Learn to stay in the present and build on your emotional strength. Participants are guided through a 20-minute meditation session with no expectation to engage or even turn the camera on.

Session themes: Easing Worry, Restorative Sleep, and Self Compassion.

The Arts and Minds series is an opportunity for people living with dementia and their partner or a friend to explore and experience art. Working on art projects creates a sense of accomplishment, purpose, and provides an opportunity for self-expression.
