Personhood and Dementia Workshop
SAVE THE DATE for our 2019 program!
Thursday, November 7, 2019 at the Bluemont Hotel
What do puppies and puppets have in common? They are both a part of Linda Zimmer’s “playful protocol” which Linda developed when her mother began showing signs of dementia. Linda combines her professional backgrounds as a Creative Arts Specialist and a puppeteer on Mister Roger’s Neighborhood to infuse music, art, and humor into the daily lives of residents in dementia care. Joining her on her journey is her therapy poodle, Toby.
Join us on as Linda teaches us aspects of her “playful protocol” that you can use to bring creativity and joy to your own relationships. More details coming soon!
