While it’s impossible to create a perfectly wonderful day, caregivers of people with dementia can create perfectly wonderful moments for people with memory loss.

In an effort to help caregivers and anyone who loves someone with dementia, CountryHouse will host Jolene Brackey, author of “Creating Moments of Joy,” for a Zoom event on Tuesday, June 28, from 6-7 p.m. Brackey will discuss simple and fun ways to bring joy into the lives of people with dementia. She will also answer questions from event attendees.

Those interested in participating should email [email protected] to be added to the RSVP list and get their personalized Zoom link. Those who attend the event live on Zoom will receive a free copy of Brackey’s book.

Brackey has been sharing his message of joy and inspiration with families and caregivers across North America for over 20 years. A sought-after voice in the healthcare community, Brackey maintains an active speaking schedule. Passing on everything she has learned from her travels and her work with families and loved ones, her passion is to change the way people look at people with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
