Go to Sessions

It is a natural human reaction to hope when facing challenges. When living with a progressive illness, what we hope for changes over time. Hope always remains present.

In the late stage of dementia, the person living with dementia will need care and support
around the clock. This period frequently requires paid help to provide the care, whether at
home or in a care home. Your role has a care partner will be changing; you are now the
voice of the person living with dementia. In the late stage sessions, you will explore:

  • how hope is helpful
  • learn about communication with care providers and the person living with dementia
  • how to maintain the best quality of life

Open the PDFs below. One will give you a visual of the overview of dementia. The second
