Tapping into the 5 Senses

Thursday, August 22, 2019 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Tapping into the 5 Senses

Location: Reston Community Center, 2310 Colts Neck Rd, Reston, VA 20191
Description: As dementia progresses, a person's ability to engage with others changes. Though memory and communication abilities are impaired, the ability to connect through the senses remains strong. Join us for an interactive workshop for caregivers to better learn how to engage our loved ones by tapping into the five senses.

Lindsey Vajpeyi, Director of Education and Outreach, will be presenting this program at the Reston Community Center. To RSVP, please call 703-390-6157.

"I like the people, the programs, the support, the knowledge I gained as caregiver. That my wife flourished (and was improving, I thought) while she participated."
