Dementia Friendly Communities
Become a Dementia Friend

February 2nd, 2021
2:00 pm CST
Free Program but space is limited so register today!

Are you an advocate for those with Dementia? 

Are you someone who wants to support those who live in our State who are navigating their lives now that they have been diagnosed with a dementia related diagnosis? 

 

Illinois is striving to be a more dementia friendly state and are advocating for people across the state to become Dementia Friendly.

To support these efforts, the Illinois Pioneer Coalition has invited Susan Frick, of the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center, to share information about two grassroots initiatives that are moving through Illinois. Dementia Friendly Communities and Dementia Friends are working to support those living with dementia throughout our state and you can have a role. Through the talk, you will become a Dementia Friend and learn how to bring these programs to your communities.

This is a free program and all those who attend will walk away with at least one action step that you can take to show your support to those living with dementia!

Compassion Fatigue & Burnout: Creating
Sustainable Practices

Wednesday March 3rd
1:00 pm-3:00 pm CST
$40 per community

Recognizing and addressing burnout is crucial for job satisfaction and helps prevent employee turnover in the long run. Unfortunately, burnout is something that happens slowly over time, impacting employee engagement and staff morale. Other negative effects include cynicism, detachment, feelings of uselessness and lack of achievement. Compassion fatigue has similar symptoms, however one can experience compassion fatigue after just one encounter. Over the last year, many of us have experienced compassion fatigue. In this session, Bronwyn Hockersmith, MA, LPC and Toni Moran, MA, LPC will teach us when staff feel deeply connected to their organization and its mission, they are less likely to experience burnout and more likely to remain loyal to their team and your company.
