Mindfulness Based Dementia Caregivers Program

Health Partners is offering a series of classes over eight weeks and a half-day retreat for those caring for someone with dementia. While caring for someone with dementia can be challenging, there are also moments of great compassion, love and fulfillment. Mindfulness offers skills to cope with stresses and to recognize moments of joy.

Studies suggest that Mindfulness may lower anxiety, stress, depression, and caregiver burden; improve overall mental health; increase self-compassion and serenity; and increase social support.

Classes will be held on Wednesdays, March 27 to May 15, with a retreat on May 4. For details, questions and to register call Jan Karrmann at 651-495-6565.
