Uncertainty seems to be lurking all around us these days.  This can derail us if we are not careful.  Let’s add Dementia to the brain of someone you love and your whole world can feel upside down, falling apart.  We can’t fix this one but with the right instructions the holidays can still be meaningful.  I can add some much needed tools to your tool belt, help you realize there is life even with dementia and find hope while dealing with progressive memory loss.  

I hope you will join me to learn better ways to enjoy family time even with someone living with Dementia. Mark your calendar for Oct. 21st at 7pm and have your notepad ready as I take you on a journey into our holiday traditions.  

Thank goodness EmpowerU provides a platform where adults can gather in person or online to learn about issues that many of us are dealing with. This event is being sponsored by Senior Care Partners.

 

7:05-7:25 PM–Jon Husted, Lieutenant Governor
for the State of Ohio joins EmpowerU.   Navigating Pathways to Credentials and Careers.  Description: Americans owe an estimated $1.57 trillion in student loan debt. Some want the debt “forgiven,” and some want college to be “free.” There are affordable solutions out there for students and families if you know how to navigate the system. It’s my goal as Lieutenant Governor to help Ohioans figure out how to reach their destination. If you take advantage of the opportunities available right now in Ohio, you can receive a college degree, an industry-recognized credential and a pathway to a rewarding career, all debt-free, no matter your age or background.
