Mindfulness-Based Dementia Care Program Schedule

2023 Winter and Spring Sessions

The Mindfulness-Based Dementia Care program’s Winter and Spring 2023 sessions will be offered online and — thanks to a generous grant — are available at no cost. Each session is a series of 8, 2-hour interactive classes over an 8 to 10 week period, and a half-day retreat.

To be eligible to participate in a Winter and Spring 2023 session, you must:

  • be an unpaid friend or family member over age 18 caring for or supporting someone with mild cognitive impairment or dementia
  • live in the United States
  • not have previously participated in the MBDC program
  • be willing to complete a survey before and after the class
  • have access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone with a camera and microphone
  • be able to participate in online video calls (via Zoom)
  • come with an open mind and a willingness to try something new (no mindfulness experience needed)

Note: If you are not eligible to participate based on the above criteria, please contact us at info@presencecareproject.com to learn about our other MBDC program sessions.

How to Register

Start here to go to our registration form, where we’ll ask you to complete a survey that includes questions about yourself and the person with the diagnosis, such as mood and experience with care partnering. We will also ask you to indicate two sessions that work with your schedule. After you complete the survey, we will email you a confirmation. Your MBDC program teacher will contact you prior to your session to touch base, confirm the class schedule and answer any of your questions.

Coming in Summer 2023
