Presented by Gloria Ramos, DAWE.

Gloria brings over 10 years of experience in the senior care industry to Artis. She has worked in life enrichment and social services throughout her career. Gloria exhibits passion for Dementia and memory loss through her daily interactions with our residents. She enjoys her role as a liaison in our community for families, residents, and associates. In her spare time Gloria enjoys DIY projects, photography, traveling and the dining out experience. Spending time with her husband, 2 toy poodles, and large family.

Our meeting can be social, educational, and/or supportive for those loved ones who have someone living with Dementia. It provides an opportunity for family members to develop a mutual support group. It offers families more contact with people who really understand because they have had similar experiences and have been there too. It is also a way for families to share ways they self sooth or adapt to the stress it causes to care for a loved one living with memory loss.

6:30 - 7:30 p.m. EST
5:30 - 6:30 p.m. CST

Presented by Heather McKay, PhD, OT/L. Heather is an Occupational Therapist, Dementia Care Specialist, and international Trainer/Speaker on topics related to dementia care and caregiver education.

Have you ever walked into a room, forgotten what you came there for, and feared the worst: “Is this dementia?” If you’re questioning your memory or interested in maintaining your brain health, you’re not alone! We’re all aging and have opportunities to care for our brains at every stage of life. Detecting a cognitive problem early could lead to a quick resolution, restore brainpower, or maintain brain function longer—all for the sake of living life to the fullest through old age.

After this program, you’ll be able to:

  • Distinguish between normal forgetfulness and a memory/thinking problem that does warrant alerting the doctor during your routine brain checkup.
  • Describe other conditions that mimic dementia and effective treatment approaches for each.
  • Identify three key essential components of a brain health program.
  • Explain the top 10 best brain exercises and strategies to grade up or down for your just right challenge.

The Best Anniversary

My husband has aphasia and has lost his ability to speak. It’s very frustrating for him, and it’s a sadness for me too. So imagine my surprise when Artis helped him celebrate our wedding anniversary. When I visited him that day, residents and staff were all gathered around the room, carrying a banner the residents had made—with my husband in the center, holding a bouquet of flowers and a card for me! They even helped him sign his name on the card—something he hadn’t been able to do in years! In a way, it was one of our best anniversary celebrations. Thank you Artis, from the bottom of my heart.
