Purpose: To provide meaningful improv workshops to positively enhance the practice of caring for an individual with memory loss. Improvisation guidelines parallel the critical skills needed to graciously care for an individual with memory loss. Participants will learn how to get out of their head, be present and in the moment, practice active listening, apply a yes and philosophy, and make others look good. Participants will acquire a unique set of tools to apply to the practice of caring for others with grace and compassion. Each individual will take away both meaningful and applicable work skills through participating in a collaborative improvisation workshop.
