The Healing Moments Mission
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for persons with Alzheimer's and dementia, reduce caregiver stress, and inspire a hopeful attitude. Our intent is to help caregivers and communities develop a deeper understanding of these diseases, and nurture the belief that meaningful relationships remain possible throughout all the stages of dementia.
Using experiential methods, Healing Moments™ programs TEACH caregivers how to communicate effectively and connect deeply with persons with Alzheimer's and dementia; how to identify and accept the limitations and gifts of Alzheimer's and dementia; and how to reduce conflict, increase cooperation, and provide quality, therapeutic care.
"Healing Moments™ programs are powered by passion, and a great understanding of Alzheimer's disease and the journey caregivers travel to cope with the disease. Caregivers who are able to participate in 'Meeting Alzheimer's: Learning to Communicate and Connect,' will have the chance to gain a better understanding of the disease, how to best connect with the person affected, and how to live with it successfully." ~ Lindsay Brennan, LSW, CMC, Executive Director, LifeCare Directions of New England
