About the Event
Senior Helpers of Panama City started the 1st Tuesday Caregiver Support Group in June 2018 so that Caregivers would know they are not alone and they have a place to meet with other people who are facing the same challenges. Senior Helpers has been sharing information about the Senior GEMS strategies unique to the industry that we use to train our Caregivers. Strategies offer solutions when Care partners ask "Why do they do that?"
Our 1st Tuesday meetings are free and open to the public. Caregivers discuss the common challenges they face when loving someone who is living with dementia.
In November 2021, we are Thankful that we are able to meet in person again!! Tuesday 11/2/21 we will "Meet and Greet" 9:30 am CST at the Panama City Beach Chamber, 309 R. Jackson Blvd., Panama City, FL. Join us this month to see what a difference a support group can make in your life!
Each month we answer the question "What to I do now?" while providing support, education, and resources. We frequently invite professionals in the field of dementia who provide dementia-specific information about resources, research, activities, medications, and more. After our guest speaker finish, there is plenty of time for caregivers to ask questions and share stories about their own experiences. Care partners who are trained to use the Senior GEMS strategies and Positive Physical Approach® are able to change resistance and refusals into acceptance and moments of joy.
Senior Helpers of Panama City provides free Senior GEMS® DVDs. Call 850.215.1793 to find our more about their Caregiver training - unique to the industry - or to get a free Senior GEMS - A Guide for Families Living with Dementia.
