                     Being in the Moment: It Is Essential

Keynote Speaker:
Karen Stobbe has a passion for teaching innovative and successful care giving strategies to help individuals with dementia live in the moment. She is co-developer of the “Hand in Hand” video that was produced by CMS and is distributed to every nursing facility in the country. Her Father and Mother are her inspirations for so desperately wanting to educate the world by bringing her unique perspective to the audience. 

Karen will lead family and professional caregivers through a full day of education and encouragement.
Topics for her sessions include:

The Many Faces of Dementia
Sometimes Ya Gotta Laugh: Tips for Caregiving and Living Life
