The Penn Memory Center kicked off its new Empowering Caregivers speaker series this month with occupational therapist and Day by Day Home Therapy founder Rachel Wiley, who presented “Meaningful Activities to Engage Your Loved One.” Wiley’s workshop was both practical and personal, emphasizing real-world advice on how to keep your loved one with dementia engaged and active, even as cognition declines.
Empowering Caregivers gives caregivers access to area experts who present on a variety of intensive topics, from in-home activities to end-of-life care. Each talk is free and capped at 30 guests. Priority will be given to those caring for patients of the Penn Memory Center. RSVP is required.
