Busy September

Hello Everyone,
On Sept. 22 I'll be going to England to visit my son's family. Their adorable 2 year old twin girls are growing up so fast I've just got to see them! While in the UK I'd like to meet with someone about the possibility of holding a training seminar there. Any guidance would be appreciated.

September is going to be a busy month. On the twelve we'll be having a party for our Uncle Jerry's 102nd birthday After living with us for nearly six years we moved him into Savannah Court Assisted Living.He gets help with all his activities of daily living. There are lots of activities and the staff is caring.

Sheila, saw your blog about going to London, interested in presenting--have you communicated w/IAHSA (the Int'l Assn of Homes and Services for the Ageing)? Their headquarters are at AAHSA (American Assn, in DC), and they may have contacts/info for you.

Welcome

Welcome to my blog where I will share my thoughts, ideas and experiences with the Benvolent Ballet Fall Prevention program. For those who are not familiar with the program it is an approach to exercise especially designed for those with physical and or cognitive challenges including the frial elderly. Inspired by classical ballet's music and concepts it becomes not only an exercise class but an altogether enriching experience.

Incorporated into this program is a motivational approach using what may be called 'empathic engagement' . One day training seminars for healthcare staff have been held throughout the US. I have personally facilitated the program in assisted living, skilled nursing facilities and independent living communities
