Mindfulness-Based Dementia Care (MBDC)

A Program for Family Caregivers
Taught by Michelle Barclay

For the past 25 years, Michelle has provided aging-related education & consulting to help older people thrive, especially those with chronic conditions including dementia.

Mindfulness  is a skill that involves training your brain to pay attention to the present moment with nonjudgmental awareness,   acceptance, openness & curiosity of “what is.”

MBDC  is an 8 week innovative, mindfulness-based program created specifically for dementia caregivers.

Learn  new skills that can help you cope with the challenges and stresses of  dementia care, and may greatly improve the quality of life for you and the person in your care.
