Through a partnership with Dementia Coach Dr. Cate McCarty, Assisting Hands will now "Create A Thriving Environment™" for clients and caregivers. Thrive, the foundation of the CATE™ approach, will be the focus of Assisting Hands' Alzheimer care.
Assisting Hands' in-home caregivers can now engage memory loss clients on a new level after they completed the four-hour "Creating A Thriving Environment," course. Additionally, clients and caregivers can interact socially at the monthly "Park Station Memory Cafe," located at Roes' Deli at 5851 Park Blvd. North, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on the second Thursday of every month. The August 11 meeting will include a presentation called, "Summertime, Living is Easy."
"Assisting Hands Home Care is committed to helping clients and caregivers not only survive, but to thrive, both at home and at our monthly Memory Cafe meetings," said Becky Moultrie, owner of Assisting Hands Home Care of St. Pete. "Home health care has become a necessity for our loved ones, but not all health care is the same. That's why we are adding the extra ingredient of CATE."
Moultrie says that in addition to social interaction, the Park Station Memory Cafe will offer a bit of education, a whole lot of camaraderie and laughter.
Park Station Memory Cafe is hosted by Assisting Hands Home Care of St. Petersburg, CATE founder Dr. Cate McCarty and Arden Courts.
