Mindfulness and Meditation (ONLINE)

2020-09-18T12:31:28-04:00

Join us for this online program!

Caring for a loved one during the COVID-19 pandemic brings new challenges; by learning to be in full awareness of what is transpiring in the mind & body, one can shift the quality of all experiences. By practicing mindful living, you become more authentic in all of your actions. Join your instructor, Pamela Rudolph to learn the 5 Elements of the Mindfulness Self-Care Model, Mindfulness grounding techniques and supports, Meditation basics and enjoy a guided secular meditation followed by a group discussion. 

What is Mindfulness & Meditation?  Mindfulness means we are paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, to be in the present moment without judgement.  It is all about focus and awareness and is a powerful tool we can all use right now. Meditation is our personal practice of focusing the mind to achieve a mentally clear and calm state.  Guided meditation is a practice of relaxed concentration where you follow a narrator’s instructions relating to breath and imagery which are very valuable to our health and well being.

City of Toronto Caregiver Strategy: Health Service Provider Focus Groups – ONLINE

2020-09-18T12:31:28-04:00

Alzheimer Society Toronto (AST) is thrilled to be leading the work on the City of Toronto Caregiver Strategy. The strategy, one of 27 recommendations outlined in the Toronto Seniors Strategy (V.2) as approved by Toronto City Council, will propose a focused and collaborative approach that better addresses and meets the needs of seniors and caregivers in Toronto.

If you are a health service provider working in the Toronto caregiving and seniors sector, we invite you to take part in a virtual focus group to share your knowledge and experience. Your feedback, along with that of caregivers, will provide input and direction in the development of the City of Toronto Caregiver Strategy. 

Scott Russell, CEO of AST will facilitate a space for you and others to discuss your experience on the support lines – with particulate emphasis on how COVID-19 has impacted you, your work and the system, what are the challenges you face, and how can the City of Toronto and other community agencies better support caregivers.

A confirmation email containing the zoom link to participate will be sent to you once you register. A short survey will be sent to you prior to the focus group to collect general data. This data will not be shared outside of the organization. Please note the Alzheimer Society of Toronto is committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your personal information.

 

About the City of Toronto Seniors Strategy

For the first time in history, there are now more Torontonians over the age of 65 than children aged 15 and below. By 2031, ONE-QUARTER of the City’s population will be over the age of 60.

Recognizing the significant policy, service and resource implications of this demographic shift, Council adopted the Toronto Seniors Strategy 2.0 (EX34.2) on May 22, 2018. This includes direction to establish a Seniors Housing and Services entity at the City.  An “Accountability Table” of 100+ agencies, department and community groups has informed and guided the development of the strategy. With this context, it is Alzheimer Society of Toronto’s desire to support Recommendation #6 to develop a Caregiver Strategy, leveraging the breadth and political success of the Accountability Table to support Seniors aging in the community including frail and those living with cognitive decline.
