Memory Bridge Dementia Immersion Training This three-day, guided journey in connecting with those in hospice with irreversible dementia will transform your understanding of the profoundest dimensions of human communication. Participants in the program will explore what it means, and does not mean, for a person to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and related forms of dementia, and not merely from the outside-in, the bio-medical perspective, but from the inside-out: from within the emotional and social lifeworlds of people living with irreversible dementia.  Developed by the Memory Bridge Foundation, and led by Michael Verde, Memory Bridge founder and lead trainer, this experience-based, empathy-centered workshop pairs each participant with a person in hospice diagnosed with irreversible dementia--a Buddy.  Volunteers and Buddies will meet two times in person over the three days of training.  Preparations for, and sharing after, participants' one-on-one interactions with their Buddies will constitute the curricular core of the workshop.  Allied to the supported companionship with actual hospice clients will be a variety of other transformative learning experiences--presentation-based, creative, reflective, peer-to-peer dialogue, case study, and sharing circles.

03/25/11 - Michael Presenting at Life Services Network 2011 Meeting

Michael is presenting There Is a Bridge: Healing the Dis-ease of Alzheimer's at this year's Life Services Network Annual Meeting to be held in Chicago, Illinois at Navy Pier.  Michael's presentation will define the crucial differences between the neurogenerative disease called Alzheimer's and the intersubjective experience of emotional and social isolation that is the dis-ease of Alzheimer's.  Rooted in a vision that challenges the cliched and fear-mongering marketing scripts through which Alzheimer's is typically framed for public consumption, Michael's presentation explores the intra- and interpersonal lifeworlds of our collective humanity and points the way to meaningful action that we can take now to begin healing the suffering associated with Alzheimer's.
