WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

  • I would describe my experience at the Institute as powerful, tiring, informative, imaginative, innovative and inspiring. It really gave me a fantastic recharge to go back to the work I do on a daily basis with new ideas, spirit and enthusiasm. 

  • Connecting and inspiring!

  • I met amazing people, learned about several very meaningful projects, experienced some really great creative processes and gained many fantastic ideas.

  • Pushed my creative envelope at times--Good kick start to ignite the fire again.

  • The presenters, content and hospitality were phenomenal!

  • It was a joy, a blessing, and a privilege to be able to attend this institute. There was a variety of gifted presenters who shared ideas to better the lives of those living with dementia, and got us all actively involved in their topic to give us first-hand experience. It was great!
