17 Dec Memory Bridge Training Retreat and Scholarship Announcement
The selected participants will receive full scholarships for the 5-day Memory Bridge Training Retreat. (The Retreat will be limited to those 12 participants, on a scholarship basis only.) All expenses except travel will be paid.
We are seeking applicants who share our dedication to ending the emotional and social isolation of people with dementia through learning how to be with them in spiritually sustaining ways. Applications are open to care providers—both professional care providers and family care providers (“non-professional”)—therapists who work with people with dementia, administrators, and service providers whose field of service enriches the lives of people with dementia.
The design of the retreat is based on Memory Bridge’s I Am A Bridge Dementia Immersion Training, an experience-centered learning model that positions people with dementia in the roles of teacher, guide, and companion.
The training retreat is co-sponsored by Indiana University’s Center on Aging and Community at the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community. Details about the Training Retreat and scholarship application will soon be posted on the Memory Bridge website at www.MemoryBridge.org.
The deadline for receipt of the first phase of the application is February 3, 2016.
There is a Bridge–please join us in building it.
