2017 Memory Bridge Training Retreat

The Indiana Institute’s Center on Aging and Community is pleased to announce the fifth annual Memory Bridge Training Retreat and Scholarship, co-sponsored with the Memory Bridge Foundation. The 2017 training will be held June 1-6, 2017 at the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Bloomington, Indiana.

The design of the retreat is based on Memory Bridge’s I Am A Bridge Dementia Immersion Training, an experience-centered learning model that positions people with dementia in the roles of teacher, guide, and companion. The deadline for receipt of the first phase of the application is January 18, 2017.

There is a Bridge, please join us in building it.
