Pinal-Gila Council webinars
The Pinal-Gila Council for Senior Citizens is presenting virtual sessions using Zoom. Participants will need a computer, tablet or smartphone with a camera and sound capabilities. On Tuesdays, Oct. 6 through Dec. 8 from 10 to 11:30 a.m., the webinar “Finding Meaning and Hope” will be offered with a video discussion series for family members caring for someone with dementia. Join a group of fellow family caregivers to discuss how to regain hope and build resilience when dealing with the complexities of ongoing loss associated with caring for someone with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In this series you will learn skills to help you stay strong, healthy, resilient and positive as you navigate your caregiving journey with healing and hope. This 10-week discussion series features videos based on the groundbreaking book “Loving Someone Who Has Dementia: How to Find Hope While Coping with Stress and Grief” by Pauline Boss, Ph.D., a leading expert on caregiver grief. It is built on solid research and years of practical experience, and it offers real help in dealing with the challenges, losses and rewards of being a family caregiver of someone who is, or is becoming, psychologically absent. Assistance is available for setup prior to the meeting. Call 520-836-2758 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and details on how to connect to the webinar.
