New Zoom Opportunities

Tru here.

With cancellation of many life events due to virus restrictions, there are also quite a few NEW opportunities to participate and connect thru Zoom video.

HOWEVER,
i think it may be time to verify that we all have contact info for each other, as much as possible.

As a result of the “stay-at-home” procedures now in effect,
more people are using various video chat platforms.
This just proves what a wonderful tool these platforms are,
to stay connected with others.

We would like to invite you to renew your connections with Dementia Mentors, etc, on our Zoom chats.

There may be temporary complications
until these video chat platforms can adjust to tremendously higher volume of participants.

But … join … connect … participate.
Get encouraged and encourage others !!!

Looking forward to seeing you around the web.

  1. WOW!

    Seems like a lot going on.

    DAA is also starting a Care Partner Discussion Group on Sundays. It was planned to tart on April 19, but due to COVID, most places of worship are closed anyway, so TODAY we decided to start on April 5th. We are finalizing plans now. Will email to you as soon as it is ready to roll.

    Thanks for sending this ut! I’m sure it helps many people!
