Overview

Have you or your partner been diagnosed with dementia? This is a huge adjustment that can feel very challenging. Take some time out to relax, have a laugh, reconnect and rediscover each other. Feel the essence of your relationship. Get to know fellow group members over a cuppa. Give life a dance.

Suitable for couples, or family members or friends and their loved ones in the early or mid stages of dementia.

Free thanks to City of Fremantle. Registration required by August 18 - call or SMS Emma on 0404 029 519.

:: About your facilitator ::

Emma Jack is a family carer, a qualified Wu Tao Dance instructor and a member of the 2016 Memory Bridge alumni. She has completed over 100 hours of training in dementia care and compassionate communication, including the Spark of Life practitioner course and Dance for PD workshops. Plus over 100 hours in professional behaviour change and group learning and facilitation training, with years of experience in these fields. Emma says: "My vision is to provide creative and nurturing spaces for people with Dementia and their Carers to connect and enjoy life." Building on two decades of personal development, yoga and meditation practice, Emma receives inspiration from Open Floor Dance and Tamalpa Art Life Institute teachers. She works closely with Wu Tao founder Michelle Locke, who developed a dementia specific Wu Tao offering in collaboration with DBMAS (the Dementia Behaviour Management Advisory Service).
