Caring for Caregivers Improves Care for All: Conference

It has been noted that there are often two victims of chronic illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and vascular dementia: the person with the disease and the caregiver. Being a care-partner for a family member or friend, whether they live with you, in a residential facility, or across the county can be stressful. However, there are ways to find ease in the caregiving journey. This is the focus of Nancy Kriseman’s keynote address at the 33rd Annual Alzheimer’s Disease Education and Training Conference. She will share with us pragmatic and helpful tools for making caregiving smoother. Her approach honors the “spirit-side” of caregiving by helping families to become more self-aware and fully present with the person with whom they are caring. We will learn how mindfulness helps reduce stress, increase resilience and prevent burnout and compassion fatigue. Self-care exercises such as setting realistic expectations, making the best possible decisions, advocating effectively, and evaluating resources and services will allow us to care for our loved one and maintain better balance in all aspects of our lives. Her suggestions cultivate routines and practices that benefit everyone – without adding more to your plate.

 

Nancy Kriseman, LCSW had been a Geriatric Social Worker in Private Practice working in eldercare for over 30 years in the Atlanta area. She has written several award winning books including, The Mindful Caregiver. In addition, Nancy was a care-partner for her mother for 17 years after she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. She brings both her professional and personal experiences to her down to earth approach.

 

Nancy will also present a workshop based upon her book, Meaningful Connections: Positive Ways to Be Together When a Loved One Has Dementia. Additional conference workshop topics include: legal and financial issues, research updates, ways to engage, access to local resources, music therapy, and more!

 

The 33rd Annual Alzheimer’s Disease Education and Training Conference, co-sponsored by FSU College of Medicine and Alzheimer’s Project, Inc., will be held 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at FSU College of Medicine, 1115 West Call Street, Tallahassee, Florida. There is no fee for the conference, though donations are gratefully accepted. Registration is required. RSVP to Stephanie Pollack, Stephanie@alzheimersproject.org 850-386-2778.  A continental breakfast and lunch are provided. On-site Respite care is available with advance notification. CEs are available for $25 payable at the event to Alzheimer’s Project, Inc.

    Hey. I want to share with all the great news! A month ago an anonymous source sent me 7 bitcoins of wallets that double the bitcoins you sent and send back your purses twice as much. I am familiar with blockchain technology and therefore did not believe it. But my curiosity has gone up. I sent at my own risk and 0.5 bitcoins to one of these wallets and in just 2 hours, exactly 1 bitcoin came to my wallet. I was shocked! Then I started working with these bitcoins wallets and revealed the regularity that one wallet can send 0.5 to 5 bitcoins per day from one purse. At the moment I have 350 bitcoins of wallets from which I send 350 - 700 bitcoins daily and get twice as much. For a month, I became a multimillionaire. Another month I will work and become a billionaire. I already got what I wanted, I quit my job, paid off all my debts, bought a good house and a car from the Audi RS4. Now I feel like a human being and live for my own pleasure. These are the good bitcoins of wallets I earn: 16mKn71otoYgAxij3y6MuCkWKco7MEa7Rn 18WWctFEVNhLJKcg14wmykymx3kySuyTLy 1BC2uQHHUdJzgRog7JMVE5cgWh37NCxwJc 1L2NgRwBXb5kiQ4uNDT5iKHN1As6kkt4rL 17dvrJFxoXA6dDxeGoLx3iVp7ogcbvr2nN 1CnZgLpuPhr9e5PhPEJnDS8fh8HCM5w5oz 1MaRdde6X7SGuoCdFNL2fmgpLomdx7peGC Now many people improve their financial status with these wallets but keep it a secret from everyone. I hate poverty, so I share with you all this method of earning, grab a piece of this huge and juicy cake. I will remind you once again. Send from one bitcoin your wallet strictly from 0.5 to 5 bitcoins per wallet per day, otherwise you will receive the same amount that you sent without doubling. This scheme of work is completely safe. You can work like me, create a lot of wallets and send them from each of them to the above wallets.
