Personhood & Dementia Workshop with Linda Zimmer

Thursday, November 7, 2019

Linda Zimmer, creative arts specialist and her therapy poodle, Toby, are the guests for the day. When her mother began showing signs of dementia Zimmer used her professional background as a puppeteer on "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" to infuse music, art and humor into the lives of residents in dementia care. Zimmer will share her "Playful Protocol," which focuses on creating joy through connections with the arts and our animal friends. Guests will acquire skills to improve connection and quality of life for people with dementia and their care partners.
Guests will also have the opportunity to meet local working dogs and their human companions and learn how animals in the Manhattan area are spreading joy and enhancing connections.
