The Three Rules: A Person-Centered* Model of Dementia Care

Feb 21, 2019 @ 6:00pm   Events, Member Events

Ann will outline and explain the three rules aimed at supporting you and your loved one through the challenges of dementia care. The three rules help support engagement with a person’s abilities rather than focusing on the side effects of disease. Offering gentle communication toward a calmer interpersonal relationship can help alleviate your own stress around the demands of toileting, dressing schedules, outside appointments and mealtimes.

Using the three rules can offer your loved one a feeling of safety and dignity through the fear and confusion so often associated with having dementia.

This is a free event, however, registration is requested. Please register at https://www.coastalpharmacyandwellness.com/resources/events/event-registration/?source=pbl.

When: Thursday, February 21st from 6:00 – 7:30 pm

SILENCE: A SOCIAL HISTORY OF ONE OF THE LEAST UNDERSTOOD ELEMENTS OF OUR LIVES

Feb 13, 2019 @ 7:00pm   Events, Member Events

Wednesday, February 13, 7PM
Jane Brox presents her new book, SILENCE: A SOCIAL HISTORY OF ONE OF THE LEAST UNDERSTOOD ELEMENTS OF OUR LIVES
Through her evocative intertwined histories of the penitentiary and the monastery, Jane Brox illuminates the many ways silence is far more complex than any absolute; how it has influenced ideas of the self, soul, and society. Brox traces its place as a transformative power in the monastic world from Medieval Europe to the very public life of twentieth century monk Thomas Merton, whose love for silence deepened even as he faced his obligation to speak out against war. This fascinating history of ideas also explores the influence the monastic cell had on one of society’s darkest experiments in silence: Eastern State Penitentiary. Conceived of by one of the Founding Fathers and built on the outskirts of Philadelphia, the penitentiary’s early promulgators imagined redemption in imposed isolation, but they badly misapprehended silence’s dangers.  Finally, Brox’s rich exploration of silence’s complex and competing meanings leads us to imagine how we might navigate our own relationship with silence today, for the transformation it has always promised, in our own lives.
