Creating the Climate for Vibrant Living
Check-in begins at 8:00 am
Workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3;30 p.m.
Lunch is provided
Presented by Carmen Bowman, this workshop is based on the "Vibrant Living" scrapbook which she co-authored with LaVrene Norton. Both the workshop and the “scrapbook” are rich with an abundance of ideas for energizing household life.
Learn how household living unlocks independence and fosters interdependence. Home sets the stage for natural engagement: just start something, sing a song, bake a cake, and people come. This is normal. This is home. This is a vibrant daily life. Households provide the opportunity for people to reclaim their lives and sit again in the driver’s seat. This workshop will provide you the opportunity to learn how to contribute to this good daily life for the people in your care.
The spirit and methodology will inspire you, whether you're in households, neighborhoods or even a traditional setting. Learn to focus on transforming the institution into a homey and vibrant place where residents can experience daily life as they’ve always known it. Residents, back in the driver’s seat and with new resources, will once again experience meaning and purpose in life.
About the presenter: Carmen Bowman is a nationally-recognized expert in activities who worked for 10 years as a state surveyor and is a frequent contractor for CMS projects.
