Life Performance Coaching’s “Creating New Performances of Memory Loss, Dementia and Growing Older” is a short-term group led by life performance coaches Helen Abel and Eileen Moncoeur. This group is open to everyone, persons with dementia, care partners, children and grandchildren who are part of the dementia ensemble, people grappling with aging, and everyone interested in transforming the dementia experience from stigma and fear to joy and growth.
Here is what some of our past group members have said about their experience:
“My mom is in the last stages of dementia. In these groups I learned to play and accept where she is. I worked to fully accept my mother with dementia and I learned how to enjoy and give to her much more. I also experienced how to be more giving and listening, and learning from folks in all stages of dementia and in caregiving roles.”
“Thank you for creating these groups. At times, the conversations among caregivers, people with memory issues, and friends were riveting, always honest. Facilitators Helen and Eileen are skilled at helping participants reach deeper in a relaxed way. My husband and I were blessed to work with them in person before COVID and after via Zoom.”
“My participation in a series of these short-term groups has allowed me at age 60 to work with fellow travelers (ages 50s through 90s) on improvising some heartfelt, playful ways of experiencing the passage of time, the significance of illness and physical changes – and our shared capacity for lifelong development throughout our whole lives.”
We look forward to seeing you in March!
