MISSION SHIFT YYC: DEMENTIA & YOUR FAMILY

  • John Fluebog Flueseum 207 8 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2P 1B7 Canada (map)

Are you in living in the Sandwich generation that has you at your breaking point!

Caring for your family member with Dementia, your own family, managing a career and oh ya’ let’s not forget being asked to volunteer in your community.

I was at my breaking point of all the above, with very little coping or supports to deal with this best timeline of my life, a successful career, raising a family and attempting to survive what I called” I didn’t ask for this type sandwich”.

I will briefly share my journey of my own stages of dealing with my parent with dementia, the layers of system and the new norms of the family dynamics in our family. I want to let you know there will be a splash of humor, we are talking your self-care.

I will give you strategies to get a hold of this chaos so you will deal with this horrible disease with your own dignity, selfcare and plan for walking down this path.
