Event Description:
Non-pharmacological interventions are recommended as the first line of support for individuals living with mild to moderate memory loss, yet research to support these interventions is not widely available and few community-based programs exist.

This workshop reviews evidence-based and evidence-informed interventions including psychotherapy, Cognitive Stimulation Therapy, Reminiscence Therapy, Life Review, and person-centered care, in an effort to prepare dementia-capable practitioners and expand programming to enhance the quality of life of this population.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance and efficacy of non-pharmacological interventions for mild-moderate dementia.
  • Know several evidence-based interventions for dementia, their components, and how they are delivered.
  • Conceptualize how one can incorporate them into their own work with clients.

Instructor Bios

Brittany Lueken, LMSW is a former Montessori teacher with a passion for working with older adults that started when she began taking care of her grandmother, who had Alzheimer’s. She continues to be influenced by Montessori in her work with older adults, which provides a methodology for constructive communication, fostering independence, self-efficacy and the cultivation of a community rooted in respect and dignity.

Cheryl Kinney, LCSW is a psychotherapist and certified life coach with over 35 years experience working with older adults and caregivers. Cheryl teaches university-level courses on aging and recently launched a private counseling practice after working over 24 years for the Alzheimer’s Association.  Cheryl has lost her father, his parents and several of their siblings to Alzheimer’s disease.

Together,  Britt and Cheryl share a passion for enhancing the lives of individuals with memory loss and supporting their care partners. They realized through their experiences that while there are many supportive services available for caregivers throughout the disease and supportive services available for those in the moderate to late stage of dementia, resources are lacking or not well known to those in the mild to moderate stage. Britt and Cheryl have made a commitment to change that.
