God's Love Through Memory Loss [Dominican Center at Marywood, Grand Rapids]
God's Love Through Memory Loss
APR 27; MAY 4, 11, 18, 25; JUN 1, 8, 15
Fridays 10:30 am - Noon
Please join us in remembering as God remembers, even as others may forget. Both family caregivers and their loved one with memory loss are invited to attend together. This program is designed to:
• Give time for family caregivers to nurture and renew their spirit as we celebrate and support the role of family caregiver.
• Offer loved ones with memory loss an opportunity to participate in a creative program engaging them in their present moment and embracing them as they are.
• Provide both the family caregiver and their loved one a common guided experience
In Kent County alone, nearly 10,000 people live with memory loss and dementia, and the number is expected to grow. It is a disease that forces family caregivers to make great sacrifices and to redefine their relationship with their loved ones throughout the process of memory loss.
