A Mindful Approach to Dementia Care: Bringing Awareness, Connection and Compassion into Each Moment

A New 1-day Workshop Offering with Michelle Barclay Sponsored by Care Partners

Saturday, March 7, from 9 am to 3 pm at Cook County Higher Education

This workshop is open to all caregivers, family members and friends of persons with dementia. Based on Mindfulness-Based Dementia Care, the workshop will include mindfulness practices, lectures, dementia care practices, and group sharing that help you be present and connect skillfully with persons with dementia. 

Michelle Barclay has 25 years’ experience leading programs on aging and dementia that help older people thrive. The course is made possible through collaboration with Cook County Higher Education and funding from the Cook County Community Fund and Lloyd K. Johnson Foundation.

Cost for the program is $50 with $25 scholarships available on request.  Bring your own lunch. Beverages, snacks and class materials will be provided.

Please pre-register by February, 28th online at or by calling Cook County Higher Education at 387-3411. To learn more about the class, contact Kay Grindland at Care Partners at 387-3788.

PLEASE NOTE: The previously-scheduled 8-week Mindfulness Based Dementia Care class has been cancelled – we hope that this 1-day workshop will work better with busy schedules and make it possible for more people to attend! J
