Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

More than 16 million people in the United States are living with cognitive impairment. With age being the greatest risk factor, this number is expected to dramatically increase as the Baby Boomer generation passes the age of 65. As helping professionals, we often see the clients behind these statistics, who wish to continue to live their life with meaning, dignity, and purpose. In this one-hour discussion, we hear from two people living with cognitive impairment who are finding purposeful and joyful living. This eye-opening discussion moderated by Cindy Nelson, JD,  exemplifies what living with meaning, dignity and purposefulness looks like.

Course Objectives:

By the end of the session – the participant will be able to:

  1. Summarize the concept of purposefulness in relation to the aging process
  2. Recognize the importance of connectedness, purposefulness, and joy in an individual’s development
  3. Discuss techniques for improving the quality of life of persons with cognitive disorders
