DEMENTIA CARE WARRIORS

The mission of Dementia Care Warriors is to provide non-medical assistance and resources to caregivers caring for those living with Alzheimer's and related dementia. 

Care Warrior /ˈker ˈwôrēər/ 

An individual who takes care of a person who is not able to care for themselves. Care Warriors are CAREGIVERS, ADVOCATES and CHAMPIONS for their loved one. They may assume the roles of nurse, doctor, financial counselor, chef, dietitian, pharmacist, activity director, miracle worker, valet, housekeeper, companion, legal advisor, mind reader, spiritual advisor, administrative assistant and stylist. Care warriors possess high levels of patience and unconditional love and are resilient, consistent and flexible. Sense of humor required. 

We designed this day just for You!

Join caregivers of all stages for a full day of high-impact workshops, learning and laughter. We will hear from 4 dynamic and engaging speakers who are experts in their respective fields. 

You will leave this event with a renewed sense of self, more clarity and practical caregiving tools. Revive | Refresh is a judgement-free, guilt-free space.  This event was designed for caregivers by caregivers. Our mission is to create a community of support and acceptance so that you know that you are not alone.
