May 20, 2021, 10am– AFC Summit workshop: Skills Capital: How Investing Time & Hard Work Now Will Lead to Dignity and Fulfilled Lives
Description: Caregivers should always have an eye on the future, the time beyond themselves, when new caregivers will be taking over. We want the next people in our loved ones’ lives to be ready to take on the duties we carry out, but are they all REALLY necessary? Are we doing things that they could learn to do themselves, in whole or in part? Are we expecting that the next caregivers will do things exactly as we do? This is a dangerous presumption, because it is certain that they will not. So, how do we use the time now to work on skills that will make them more prepared, safer, less vulnerable, and give them more dignity and pride in themselves?

NEW IN 2020: Developing a Circle of Support – HANDS ON workshop
4 hours – $70 per participant. Individuals with disabilities representing themselves are free.
If your greatest fear is “who will take care of the person I love when I’m gone?” then you are NOT alone. You may have heard the term “Circle of Support” floating around, but you’re not sure what it means, you’ve rejected the idea as impossible or you’re just not ready to hear it. This workshop will be emotional. It will be full of difficult conversation. Your heart and your mind will be challenged. Then, together, we will find a pathway and leave armed with the tools we need to create the most important gift we will ever give the person we love.
- The next HANDS ON workshop date is Friday, September 17, 2021. Please email me with your interest!
