Presented by Reita Derrick and Rev. Patricia Brown M.Div., PhD, from VITAS Hospice

Navigating landmarks through the aging process can be difficult and painful, and having a trusted partner who can walk with us is invaluable. VITAS provides a free community service that does just that through their Goals of Care Program. Reita Derrick serves as a liaison that connects with individuals and their families when long, intimate conversations are needed to make important decisions and understand disease progression.

Reita will team up with VITAS Bereavement Services Manager, Rev. Patricia Brown, to facilitate a conversation about Anticipatory Grief. Tricia works to help VITAS’ patients and their families find peace, renewed purpose and contentment in their lives. They will apply these values to the conversation with the goal of easing the stress of choosing to settle a loved one into Memory Care.

Presented by Mary Underwood, Vice President of Memory Care Services, Artis Senior Living

People with dementia sometimes ask questions that caregivers struggle to answer. How much of the truth should I tell? If I am not truthful, am I lying to my loved one?

During this session, we will discuss what is happening in the brain of someone with dementia, and how to answer their difficult questions in a way that feels ethical.

My Mom...the Fashionista!

My mom always dressed fashionably. Everyone admired how glamorous she was, but I couldnt believe it when Artis partnered with Macys to throw a community fashion show—with residents as the runway models! There was my mom, dressed in the latest styles, rolling down the red carpet. But the best thing she wore: a beaming smile. I could tell how proud and beautiful she felt about herself—and that meant the world to me. Artis gave that back to her. I’ve got a new set of photos to treasure!
