What is Mindfulness? Mindfulness is a skill that involves training your brain to pay attention to the present moment with nonjudgmental awareness, acceptance, openness and curiosity of “what is.”

What is MBDC? MBDC is an 8 week innovative, mindfulness-based program created specifically for dementia caregivers

What will you learn? MBDC teaches new skills that can help you cope with the challenges and stresses of dementia care, which may greatly improve the quality of life for you and the person in your care.

Why Mindfulness for Caregivers? Caring for someone with dementia can be challenging, but there are also moments of great compassion, love and fulfillment. Mindfulness offers skills to cope with stresses and to recognize moments of joy.

Studies suggest that Mindfulness may:

  • lower anxiety, stress, depression, and caregiver burden
  • improve overall mental health
  • increase self-compassion & serenity
  • increase social support
