#2 – Meeting Loved Ones Where They Are, with Faith Marshall
Faith Marshall is a published author and expert on Alzheimer’s and dementia with a new approach. In this episode, Faith tackles the fear that we’ve been reaching out to our loved ones in senior centers via Zoom, or phone calls or with a window separating them, and being afraid that they won’t remember us when we’re finally able to reconnect with them in person.
“I would just want to run in and give them a big hug, but it may be better first to gauge how they’ll respond to that, taking baby-steps toward becoming reacquainted, meeting them where they are, psychologically.”
Episode 3: Reconnecting in the New Normal, with Faith Marshall
Faith Marshall of Awakenings Hypnosis & Coaching talks about communicating and reconnecting with senior loved ones during the pandemic, as we’ve been programmed to be distant, respecting spaces and creating barriers, even when vaccinated. In this new normal, those in senior care have seen changes, but you have to connect with them as they’re able, understanding that their memory is tricky and they may not have realized that this new normal has lasted for more than a year.
