Ann Arbor Senior Living Community offers free series on dementia and care

ANN ARBOR, me. Starting June, members of the Ann Arbor community can learn more about dementia and care in a free series of webinars from the Glacier Hills Senior Living Community.

The Walter J. Weber Dementia Education Series is hosted by the Glacier Hills Foundation and provides training and techniques to residents, families, and community organizations who work with or care for individuals with cognitive decline.

The series offers free webinars hosted by dementia care expert Teepa Snow and her Positive Approach to Care team. Each webinar can accommodate up to 500 participants.

Individuals working with people with dementia or cognitive decline can also take part in two-day workshops on personal skills, hands-on mentoring in small groups, and online group learning and skills assessment.

Family members can also be invited to participate in weekly support groups.

Interested parties can register here.

The new series is named after the University of Michigan environmental engineer and professor emeritus Walter J. Weber, who lived in Huron Woods. Thanks to a donation from his family, Glacier Hills was able to offer the webinars free of charge.

“We are very grateful for the donation from the Weber family. Working with his daughters and significant others has been very rewarding. They realize their desire for families and caregivers to fully understand the disease and have the tools they need to maintain strong and meaningful relationships with their loved ones. That’s what philanthropy is about, “said Becky Pazkowski, Executive Director of the Glacier Hills Foundation, in a press release.

The educational series continues throughout the year.
