Agapé Hospice is proud to welcome Jolene Brackey, author of "Creating Moments of Joy" back to South Carolina for two half day workshops on October, 14th and 15th at the Agapé Senior Conference Center on Main Street.
Jolene, who truly has a gift for creating moments of joy for dementia patients teaches caregivers the importance of finding where patients believe they are in their own mind. This foundational step is necessary to gain the understanding and patience required to change the communications process.
With changes in the way caregivers communicate, Jolene teaches techniques that allow caregivers to discover the hidden treasures within each patient.
A moment of joy created between a patient and a caregiver will instantly be forgotten by the patient but the good feeling generated by the memory can linger on giving the patient a feeling of peace and well-being.
Jolene believes there is no way to create a perfectly wonderful day for a dementia patient but there are lots of ways to create perfectly wonderful moments. Jolene's insights will give caregivers the necessary tools to enable more positive patient outcomes. Creating these positive outcomes will ultimately lead to a calmer environment for both patient and caregiver.
