Aging with Pride: IDEA. IDEA (Innovations in Dementia Empowerment and Action) is a first-of its kind, free program utilizing evidence-based problem-solving, low-impact exercise, and tools of health coaching for empowering older adults with memory loss AND their care partners (friend, partner, spouse or other who assists them.) to improve their well-being and health. Either the person with memory loss or the care partner needs to be LBGTQ and they (the two of them) will receive a total of $125 for their time.
The Coach connects with the participants using a very easy VIDEO CHAT process; the program includes 9 virtual sessions with a coach over 6 weeks, with 5 phone interviews over 13 weeks.
Puget Sound Old Lesbians Organizing for Change (PSOLOC) coordinates an Oral History Project. Volunteers are always welcome.
The Adult Family Home Council is creating a speaker’s bureau for people that would be willing to give trainings to Adult Family Home Providers and their caregivers throughout the State of Washington. If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please use this link to apply.
