Do you find yourself, as a care partner, attempting to fill in hours, day after day with very little feeling of accomplishment? We often speak to others in a similar situation and convince ourselves we are not doing our best or enough……leading to further isolation, negative feelings, and discouragement. You are NOT alone! Join us as we brainstorm best practices and build confidence in developing realistic activities and expectations for those we love. Kareen King is an author of Engage! 28 Creative Enrichment Experiences for Older Adults (ArtAge Pub.). She works with organizations that want to create a culture where elders and their care partners are loved, validated, and creatively engaged. As a Registered Drama Therapist and Creative Engagement Specialist, she can help you discover exciting ways to provide meaningful and engaging experiences for older adults as well as offer creative care-giving tools for caregivers and individuals in the field of aging services.
