Laurie Archer, Nursing Home Administrator Adrian, MO
"I gave a hand massage to calm on of our residents who has Alzheimer’s disease who roams. I caught her as she was winding up to 'sundown'. She sat down and let me 'practice for a class I took'. In ten minutes, she was asleep with her head on my shoulder. No medication was needed that night to calm her down. It was so cool!"
Host Training Facilities
Ann Catlin explains why Compassionate Touch® training is always held in an eldercare facility.
The hands-on component is a very important aspect to the experience, as what's learned in the classroom "comes alive" during sessions with elders in the facility. Visit the Workshop & Schedules page to locate a workshop in your area or host a workshop at your facility.
