Manna House offers supportive memory loss retreat

February 17, 2021 by

Manna House of Prayer will offer a workshop on maintaining relationships through the difficulty of memory loss. The workshop, “Memory Loss Changes Everything!” will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020.

Presenter Sister Gilla Dubé acknowledges that one of the most difficult experiences in life is accompanying someone we love who is living with diminishment of their memory. While the person with memory loss may look the same, they are not. They can no longer access their memory in the same way and that’s extremely scary and confusing. Relationships are forever changed and day-to-day life is altered.

Come spend time away and begin unraveling and naming the impact of memory loss and learning how to reweave relationships as gently as possible. Cost: $50 (includes lunch). For information call: 785-243-4428 or email: retreatcenter@mannahouse.org or visit mannahouse.org to enroll online. Preregistration required by Oct. 7.

Manna House of Prayer is located at 323 E. Fifth St., Concordia, Kansas. It is a ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia.
