About the Event

Join Katia Engell & Robin Gertin, The Bitove Method’s trained facilitators, as well as other caregivers in an interactive session. Together we will explore practical, physical and emotional considerations that can help support a meaningful holiday season for you and your loved one living with dementia.

Participants will leave this workshop having discussed the “soup to nuts” of navigating the holidays with a loved one living with dementia, as well as tools and practical resources to add to your caring tool belt. 

Come explore these experiences and topics with others who are on the same journey as you and learn new things to empower and support you ahead of the upcoming holiday season.
