Life Transitions: Navigating the Narrow Passages

A Congregational Care Series

Starting this fall, Faith UMC will offer a monthly series with guest speakers who will help us prepare for significant changes in one’s life. The hope is that the talks themselves may evolve into support groups or new small group ministries. Each event will include a catered meal and panel discussion or lecture, followed by a time for questions and answers.

 

Successful Communications with Loved Ones With Memory Loss

October 24, 2017, 6:30-8:15pm, Fellowship Hall

Our second meeting of the new monthly series will feature Asbury Methodist Village’s resident counselor, Gary Clark. The presentation is designed to address two issues:

  • learning how to detect early signs, and recognizing the similarities and differences between normal memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia
  • learning new perspectives and strategies for positive conversations and more effective communications

The workshop will begin with a catered dinner. Donations for the cost of the meal will be accepted. Please RSVP by Wednesday, October 18th to Scott Roby, Faith’s Director of Congregational Care. sroby@faithworkshere.com

Gary Clark is a licensed clinical professional counselor trained as a marriage and family therapist. He has over thirty-five years of experience in the field. He specializes in a cognitive-behavioral approach that features encouragement, respect, and regular doses of humor.
