Alzheimer's Association, NM Chapter, Caregiver Seminar

Saturday, January 29th, 9am – 4pm (Virtual)

The Alzheimer's Association, NM Chapter is announcing a special, one-day virtual event for families in New Mexico that are experiencing Alzheimer's and dementia. This free, inclusive “Caregiver Seminar” covers content from all three “Living with Alzheimer’s for Caregivers” programs: “Early Stage”, “Middle Stage” and “Late Stage.”

A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or Dementia can lead to many questions. As the disease progresses, the need for information and support will grow. Combining the three-part program into one informative overview allows the caregiver a unique opportunity to preview and prepare for the challenges each stage of the journey presents.

"We are excited about this seminar that provides family caregivers with information and tools to best support their loved one with dementia. We are especially pleased to present a Saturday format to allow all those working family caregivers the opportunity to attend.” says Ron Eppes (Program Director, Alzheimer’s Association, NM Chapter.)

“There is so much fear and confusion that comes with a diagnosis of this disease. This seminar will lessen those fears and provide families with a way to map the future together with love and thoughtfulness,” says Eppes. “With this guidance and support families will be able to reduce stress and experience joy as the disease progresses. This seminar is very practical and gives you what you need to know, what to plan for, and what to do along the way.”

Schedule:
Early Stage Presentation: 9am - 11am
Middle Stage Presentation: 11:30am - 1:30pm
Late Stage Presentation: 2pm - 4pm

Free. For registration and information, contact: nmprograms@alz.org or 505-266-4473

Upaya Zen Center- Contemplative Residency

Experience a contemplative monastic life of socially engaged Buddhism while living in community on the campus of Upaya Zen Center in Santa Fe, NM. The residential path offers an immersion into the community life of a Zen Buddhist sangha working together in a deep field of practice. Daily life involves study, intensive meditation, liturgy, work practice, and local community service. Residents participate in an ongoing diverse course of study and training from local and world-renowned faculty who lead Upaya’s rich programming. The programs span topics from meditation practice and ancient Buddhist philosophy to current compassionate world engagement and cutting-edge cognitive science.

Enrollment is ongoing and an application is required. Covid-19 vaccination and quarantine requirements will apply. If accepted, you begin with a one-month trial period of mutual evaluation. Then you may be invited to complete a four-month minimum commitment. Cost is $450 per month which includes food and lodging, retreats and programs, and mentorship by senior practitioners. After a successful one-year term, the opportunity to continue residency at a deeper level of involvement and commitment may be considered.
